Faith Formation Instructors & Assistants
Faith Formation Instructors
The Children and Youth Faith Formation team is looking to expand our group of lead teachers and substitutes. Instructors may anticipate a commitment of 2 hours of preparation and 1 hour of classroom time each week. Instructors need not have formal training in education; training for faith formation, along with mentoring and support both inside and beyond the classroom, is provided. Grace Church follows the Diocese of New Jersey’s Safeguarding God’s Children policies for those who work with young people, including training and background checks. Weekly Update for Faith Formation Leaders.
Faith Formation Assistant
In addition to lead teachers, children are supported in faith formation through the presence of caregivers and other adults serving as assistants during the formation time in the gathering and classrooms. While open to other adults, this is an opportunity for parents and grandparents to engage their faith while spending time with the children in their families and their church friends. Grace Church follow the Diocese of New Jersey’s Safeguarding God’s Children policies and practices for those who work with young people, including training and background checks.
Christian Faith Formation Committee
The Christian Faith Formation Committee meets on Sundays throughout the year after formation hour to think strategically and creatively about the ways we support the children and families in their faith journey at Grace.
Our next meeting is Sunday, November 3rd at 11:45 am in the 2nd floor open space.
