Volunteering in the Backyard

Are you interested in volunteering in The Backyard? We'd love to have you be a part! There are many opportunities to serve and get connected with The Backyard. Just ask one of our Backyard leaders or Frontline volunteers and they will be able to get you started.


Core Values ( E.X.P.L.O.R.E.)

Environment- We believe that creating a thematic and engaging environment brings life to God’s word and invites not just a child's interest, but also their heart, mind and soul as well.

 X-periential- Multi sensory learning is how children learn best.

 Participatory- We believe that discovery and change best occur when children actively engage in The Backyard.

 Loving – We believe that God uses loving relationships to reflect His love for children.

 Opportunities – We believe that providing children and their families with opportunities for growth and community outside of the weekend service allows children to discover that God is more than just a Sunday Morning God.

 Relevant – We believe that close study of children’s culture will reveal effective avenues for communicating God’s Truth.

 Equipping – We believe that parents who are growing in skill and faith are the key to growing children strong in skill and faith; an equipped home is a great place to discover the life God intends for each of his children.
