JCUMC is blessed to have many caring and dedicated parents who support the youth ministry by sharing their time, energy, and enthusiasm. We welcome and encourage the participation of all parents!
Youth Parent Orientation
Youth Parent Orientation takes place in early August every year. Parents and students are invited to learn about the Youth Ministry, student event registrations, and many of the parent volunteer opportunities that are available. Parents who are unable to attend orientation are still welcome to volunteer at any time during the year.
Youth Floor Volunteers
Sunday school teachers, assistants, and greeters are devoted parent regulars on the Youth Floor every week. They volunteer on Sundays from 9:45 am to 10:45 am.
Catalyst parent volunteers serve a light snack, clean up, and may assist the youth director afterwards. Parents take turns and can choose a Sunday evening that works best for them. Catalyst parent volunteers are needed on Sundays from 5:15 to 7:15pm.
Church on Wednesday involves parents as greeters, small group leaders, and assistants. Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:30pm.
Mission projects, retreats, day trips, and sports events are great opportunities for parents to volunteer as drivers and chaperones. These events happen throughout the year. Volunteers sign up to help during the designated student registration period.
Every year, JCUMC youth reach out to the entire community when they present this very special event. It takes many helping hands to make it happen. From costumes to set-building to marshmallow-roasting, there’s a place for everyone!
Because we are committed to the safety and spiritual growth of all students, we follow guidelines and procedures in accordance with JCUMC Safe Sanctuary policies. All youth parents are encouraged to attend a brief, one-time training session to become Safe Sanctuary trained. Please contact the main church office for more details and scheduled training dates.
