TEAM 4:12 Volunteer Team
It takes an incredible about of planning, time and love to make our PreK-5th grade Wednesday night program a success.
Meals are prepared and served by a group of gentlemen who always have a smile. Bus and van drivers and ride-along adults are crucial for many of our kids to be able to attend TEAM 4:12.
Each group of children are able to build
relationships with their team leaders. And our four classes (Teaching, Application, Energy, and Memory) are led by at least two teachers that engage the children in learning Biblical Truths.
Each of our volunteers have been given a passion to love on children by God our creator and are they are eager to serve the Kingdom by serving our children each week.

Office Manager: Janet Woolsey
Currently we do not have a specific Youth Pastor. We are currently seeking God's direction and guidance as we move forward to fill this vacancy. We are grateful for our Awesome Youth Sponsor who are determined advocate for our youth and support them as a Youth Pastor would.
Janet is on top of it all. She has been the church "secretary" for the last 4 years, but she does so much more than office work! She takes care of our flock.
She assures that everyone is informed of prayer requests and church news via emails, the bulletin and newsletter. She blesses those who have had surgery or illness with a goodie bag of sweets and movies.
She has lived in Mtn. View her whole life, which makes her and essential part of our team.
She and her husband enjoy watching their granddaughters run cross country, traveling and watching Bonanza
We offer four adult, one college, one high school, one middle school and five children's Sunday School classes, plus nursery, Wee Worship and Kids Worship each Sunday morning.
We also have Sunday night Bible Study classes during the school year for all ages.
All of this requires a number of dedicated, Bible-loving people who have been gifted the ability to teach, and the courage to trust in God as they lead others into His Word.
Our Youth Team is nothing short of awesome! They are always there to support the youth leaders, check in on students, stay up late for lock-ins, attend retreats, teach lessons when needed and consistently lead small groups.
They truly love our students. They use their life experiences to help guide. But most importantly they listen - they listen to struggles, they listen to successes and they even listen to drama. They make sure our students know they matter, not only to them but to Jesus Christ.
All staff and volunteers are required to participate in a Child Protection class, have a background check and
additional training while an active part of our Children and Youth Ministry.
