Covenant of Service Opportunities

During our Sunday morning group time, your tween has been exploring their own God-given spiritual gifts, and they’re discovering ways to use those gifts to serve in God’s kingdom. See below for more information about opportunities to use their gifts here within our church!

  1. YC&W Helper

Young Children & Worship (YC&W) is a ministry that helps 4, 5 and 6 year olds smoothly transition from the nursery to worship in the Sanctuary during the 8:30 and 11:00 services. Tweens are invited to help assist the leaders as needed. Click to sign up as YC&W Helper.

  1. Junior Nursery Helper

As a Junior Nursery Helper, your tween will get to love on the littlest in our midst by reading them a story during either the 8:30 or 11:00 service.  Click to sign up as a Junior Nursery Helper.

  1. Serving Together

Each grade level (1st – 6th) has been assigned a ministry partnership through their Sunday school group, but families and tweens are welcome to donate to or volunteer with any agency.  There are no Serving Together events on the calendar this spring, however, 4th-6th graders have an opportunity to work with several agencies through Mission Camp this summer. Click here for more information about Mission Camp.

  1. Baptism Buddy

Baptism Buddies stand alongside a family and pray for their baby (or child) as they are baptized during the worship service.  We have provided your tween’s name to Susan Kirby, who will contact you as opportunities arise.  If you have questions or would like to contact Susan, you may do so at skirby@fpcnashville.org or 615-298-9540.

  1. Doxology Choir

The Doxology Choir sings during several worship services during the year.  Practices are held on Sunday afternoons and select Wednesday evenings at the church, and are part of an integrated program of music and spiritual formation.  If your tween is interested, you can sign up online or contact Jerry Monds with any questions (jmonds@fpcnashville.org).

  1. Pray for Leadership

Prayer is a wonderful gift and powerful tool.  Tweens interested in praying for our Church leadership will receive a pictorial directory of the Elders and Deacons.

  1. Contribute to the Offering

If your tween has indicated to their Sunday school teachers (or if they indicate this in the future) that they would like to contribute to the church offering regularly, we will happily provide them with a set of offering envelopes.  If you need additional envelopes, they are available at the Children’s Hospitality Desk.
