We are recruiting individuals to join the Childcare team to support scheduled discipleship classes and various ministerial meetings throughout the year. These temporary minimum wage, paid positions will be filled based upon each class/event's unique needs. Assignments for Providers are subject to change based upon child registration and attendance.
This upcoming season, DRCC will offer childcare in support of:
Adult Discipleship Classes (Monday evenings)
Sister 2 Sister Bible Studies (Thursday mornings),
First Step and Membership classes (Saturday mornings),
Children’s Ministry/Youth Ministry sponsored Parenting classes (Sunday evenings)
Based upon your availability, you may be contacted by other Ministry Leaders with childcare opportunities.
Childcare providers will be compensated for one hour of work for any non-weather related cancellations of a childcare session that takes place in a 24-hour window before the start of the said childcare session.
Childcare providers will operate on a guaranteed work schedule with built-in re-evaluation periods. In other words, in the case of a 10-week class, DRCC would guarantee the childcare providers 3 weeks of work and then would re-evaluate how many providers are needed for the next stretch (4 weeks) and then another evaluation would take place for the remaining period (i.e. final three weeks).
Applicants 16 and 17 years of age are required to:
Complete the online Red Cross Babysitter Certification program.
Obtain a work permit prior to serving.
You may bring your forms to the church office Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 am-4pm or you may drop your forms off at the Children's Ministry desk during service times.
All applicants under 18 will be partnered with background-checked individuals 18 years and older.
Applicants under the age of 18 do not need to have a background check.
Applicants 18 years and older must submit the required information for DRCC to obtain a criminal background check. In order to pay you, we will need a current W-2 form on file at the church.
Upon approval, an individual’s name will remain on the Childcare Providers list until they request removal.
Childcare is a discipleship opportunity for children. Therefore, Childcare Providers will be expected to share a scripted, prepared Bible-based lesson series during their scheduled time with the registered children. Bible lessons will be age-appropriate to the classroom to which you are assigned. Due to the teaching component, Childcare Providers will be asked to sign a statement of faith based upon the Core Beliefs and Values of Damascus Road Community Church.
Childcare Providers will be expected to perform general cleaning of the assigned classroom(s) at the conclusion of each class. Childcare Providers may be required to lift children 25 lbs and under, depending on classroom assignment.
Childcare Providers will be required to attending a training session prior to their first day of service. Childcare Providers are required to adhere to the policies and procedures of DRCC.
