The religious education program relies on volunteers to help welcome and nurture our families with children and youth, but it is also an extremely active, engaged, and friendly community within the church that offers many rewards. Teaching volunteers often find their own personal learning greatly enriched through the lessons and stories offered.

Volunteering is easy and low-key, and is a great way to get and stay connected! Besides teaching, there are many other varied volunteer opportunities. We ask that all parents or caregivers with minors in any of the programs are asked to volunteer for 4 hours over the course of the year for their participation.

Please contact the LRED at if you are interested in volunteering as a teacher or facilitator, would like to know more about specific positions, or have questions about volunteering in general!

Requirements for anyone working with children or youth:

  • Must have up-to-date clearances and background check prior to teaching. Clearances can be obtained through and are paid for by the church. Copies of current clearances are allowed.
  • Must be a member of the church or have attended regularly for at least 6 months. (Exceptions may be made for those coming from prior congregations). 
  • Attend volunteer orientation. If you are unable to attend, establish a time to make-up with the LRED.
  • Regular and prompt communication with teaching team members and the LRED
  • For Our Whole Lives & Coming of Age, or High School youth:
    • Aged 25+
    • Member of the church 

The LRED reserves the right to approve or decline any volunteer applicant according to best practices and professional judgment.
