Volunteer Training #1: Nurturing Faith in the Little Lives of Little Metro

Session One: See, Hear and Feel

Specialized Little Metro Volunteer Training.

Our goal is that our Metro families will know God’s Word well enough to preach the gospel to themselves at home together daily, so when we are in the classrooms on Sunday, it is a natural extension of what is already going on in the homes of our children.
Using The Gospel Story Bible and the curriculum’s at home family devotionals, parents have practical opportunities to build a biblical foundation for their home and family, which is then supported by the truth being taught in the service and classrooms on Sundays.

At Metro Church we place a high priority on our children’s ministry on Sunday mornings. In our pursuit of this, we are investing in our Little Metro Volunteers by bringing in a guest speaker that specializes in training teachers, to better equip us for the ministry of each LM classroom.

If you are a volunteer in Little Metro, or plan to be in the future, you need to attend both of these trainings.

Please RSVP quickly to help us in prepare the printed materials for the trainings.
