Volunteers for Easter for Kids 2016


Easter for Kids will be held on Saturday, March 19th from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.  Volunteers must arrive by 8:30 am on Saturday. 

This is an exciting outreach event for Reformation! It will be a fun-filled day of Easter activities including crafts, songs, games, a yummy snack, and a celebration of the life and resurrection of Jesus!

One of the things that has made this event a success in the past has been our volunteers!  Volunteers ensure children have a wonderful time learning about Jesus and the messages he teaches.  We need volunteers to help make this year's Easter for Kids, a great success. Please take a moment to register for volunteer positions such as Crew Leader, registration, Bible story leader, snacks, crafts, games, song leader, and follow up.
