Spirit of Peace United Church of Christ is a progressive, open, and affirming Christian community in Issaquah, WA. We are an active, enthusiastic, and intergenerational congregation who share the belief that church must be a safe and welcoming refuge for believers, seekers, and doubters of all ages, and a place where everyone is welcome no matter who they are or where they are on life’s journey. We worship at Our Savior Lutheran Church on Sundays at 9:30am.
We are seeking a part-time Children and Youth Leader who delights in working with youth of all ages, and who will build and nurture an active and inclusive youth program for our students.This Leader is to oversee our Youth Education/Sunday School program. First and foremost, we are seeking someone who will create a safe place for our children and youth to
share their lives, their stories, and their questions of faith. We are looking for someone with a spirit of playfulness and adventure who will provide creative opportunities for fun, fellowship, music, creation, and community service. Additionally, the Children and Youth Leader will partner with the congregation to foster intergenerational relationships between the youth and adult members of the congregation.
Consistency is important for our young people, but we are open to co-creating a weekly and seasonal rhythm to meet your needs. We would want the Children and Youth Leader to regularly be present on Sunday mornings.
We want our youth to find a place where they are loved, supported, and valued for the unique and individual people they are; a place where they grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith and where we plant the seeds of spirituality that will carry them into adulthood. To this end, we have an enthusiastic group of volunteers in addition to our pastor and music leader — who will support the Children and Youth Leader in their role throughout the week.
