Nursery Volunteer

CITP offers two nurseries to provide safe, nurturing childcare to our youngest members and visitors. The infant nursery cares for children ages birth through age 2.  The toddler nursery is designed for children ages 2-4. Nursery volunteers assist the paid nursery workers.   (NOTE: The CITP child protection policy requires that two adults be present for all children’s and youth activities.) The volunteer may be asked to play with children, hold babies, assist children with activities, and help to pick up toys. Nursery volunteers are needed during the Sunday worship hour (10:15-11:30AM). Most volunteers are scheduled for 6 Sundays a year (once every 2 months).

Godly Play Storyteller

CITP’s children’s Sunday school program employs the Godly Play curriculum. This program engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.

Each Sunday, the adult storyteller uses a Godly Play script along with handcrafted wooden figures to share a sacred story with our young people. Storytellers prepare their stories in advance, closely following the Godly Play story script. During the class period, the storyteller presents the weekly story, invites the children to engage with it through “I wonder…” questions, and encourages them to “work” with the
story using arts and crafts materials. At the end of the class period, the storyteller offers a blessing to each of the children as they exit the classroom. An adult door helper will also be present in the room to assist the children.

Two Godly Play classes run each Sunday: one for children 4-8; another for children 9+. The classes are held in two specially designed classrooms down the education hall and they run from 9:15-10:15AM. Training is provided for all storytellers. Most storytellers are scheduled once a month.

Godly Play Door Helper

CITP’s children’s Sunday school program employs the Godly Play curriculum. This program engages what is most exciting about religious education: God inviting us into—and pursuing us in the midst of—Scripture and spiritual experience. Godly Play practice teaches us to listen for God and to make authentic and creative responses to God’s call in our lives.

Each Sunday, the adult storyteller uses a Godly Play script along with handcrafted wooden figures to share a sacred story with our young people. To comply with CITP’s child protection policy and to provide assistance to the storyteller, an adult door helper is present in each Godly Play class. The door helper helps children prepare to enter the Godly Play classroom in a calm manner, supports the storyteller by redirecting children having difficulty following the story, assisting children during the arts and crafts time, and handing out the “feast” (snack patterned after communion).

Two Godly Play classes run each Sunday: one for children 4-8; another for children 9+. The classes are held in two specially designed classrooms down the education hall and they run from 9:15-10:15AM. Training is provided for all door helpers. Most door helpers are scheduled once a month.
