Volunteer Opportunities 


Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Family Ministry Team! God is moving in incredible ways among our children and youth, and we are in need of volunteers to join them in their journey. If you are ready to invest in their lives, please fill out an application today!  If you have any questions or want more information, please email our Nursery and Children’s Coordinator Lauren De Boer at ldeboer@covenantpalmbay.org.


Sonrise Island Nursery | Ages 0-3

Sunday mornings | monthly | Year-round
Our nursery provides a safe and loving environment for children ages 0 - 3 years old. By having regularly scheduled volunteers, we are able to develop relationships with the children and their families and provide a familiar face each Sunday. Our volunteers, called Captains, serve once a month. As a Captain, you would get to welcome the little ones and their parents as they arrive on a Sunday morning. You get to read them the Bible lesson and do a craft or activity with the older children as well. You’ll change diapers, give them a snack, and have fun playing games with them. Other volunteers from the congregation will be scheduled to be your helpers, and you will never be alone.
 

Covenant Cove | Grades PreK-4th

Sunday mornings | monthly | Year-round
Covenant Cove is our children’s Sunday School program for VPK - 4th graders during the worship service. It includes large group activities and teaching as well as small group activities. Our volunteers, called Lifeguards, serve once a month with a helper. As a Lifeguard, you would help bring your class from the Worship service to the Fellowship Hall after they are dismissed from church. You would sit with your class during the large group teaching and worship time, encouraging them to participate and listen. During the small group time, you would lead your class in discussions, activities, and games. You will be emailed the lesson the week before you serve so you can be prepared before you arrive.


Voyagers | Grades 1-4

Wednesday nights | weekly | Sep-May
Voyagers is our children’s discipleship ministry for children in 1st to 4th grade. It meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm to 8:15pm. As a leader in Voyagers, you would stay with your group (divided by age and gender) during the larger group teaching time and then also during a small group time. This small group time is a wonderful opportunity to be in the lives of these kids, some of whom do not regularly attend church. You can discuss the large group teaching and go through a lesson to encourage discussion. There are monthly special events that you will get to do with the kids as well. These events provide a fun environment to get to know the kids in a more casual way, while still encouraging them in their relationship with God.

 

Encounter and Elevate | Grades 5-8

Wednesday nights | weekly | Sep-May
Encounter (5th and 6th Grade) and Elevate (7th and 8th Grade) are Covenant’s middle school ministries. They meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 8:15pm. All the kids are together during a large group teaching time and then divide up into Encounter and Elevate. You will spend some time with the kids during a small group discipleship time (divided by grade and gender) and also a large group game/activity time. Your role in the lives of these kids is an incredible opportunity! They are at a pivotal place in their lives where their faith is becoming real, and they are struggling with external events that are shaping and impacting their lives. To have people showing up every week, getting to know them, asking them questions, and investing in their lives is a great gift and a beautiful reflection of God's faithfulness. These kids bring so much fun and energy with them on Wednesday nights! You don’t want to miss this opportunity.


Plugged In | Grades 9-12

Sunday nights | weekly | Sep-May
Plugged In is our discipleship ministry for high school students. They meet weekly on Sunday nights from 5:15pm - 6:15pm during the school year. Being a Plugged In group leader provides you with a front row seat into the lives of these teenagers and how God is working in their lives. The groups are divided up by grade and gender and you will spend this time in a small group room talking together. High school is a pivotal time in their lives, and to have someone to meet with them weekly to listen, support, encourage, pray with and point them to Christ is one of the biggest blessings they will receive. 


Edge | Grades 9-12

Sunday nights | weekly | Sep-May
Edge is our high school ministry that meets weekly on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:00pm. There is a time of Gospel teaching, eating, and crazy activities that help the teens develop relationships with one another and their leaders while having lots of fun! Being an Edge leader can involve various things - planning games, developing relationships with the youth, helping set up and/or clean up, serving food, organizing monthly events, and possibly something involving rubber chickens. The benefits of joining this ministry are unending!
