First Church of Christ, Congregational is a vibrant and welcoming community of faith located in Redding, CT. We take particular pride in our Christian Education programs, and we’re dedicated to making sure that the young people who participate in the life of our community have a great time each and every Sunday.
The Director of Children’s Ministries (DCM) will be a faith filled person who provides organizational leadership, support and administrative oversight essential for the success of our Sunday school (ages from birth to 13 years of age) and family programming.
We seek a passionate person who loves children and families, and who will help to build and nurture a loving & inclusive Christian community. The DCM will work closely with the Christian Education Committee to create a warm and welcoming environment where all individuals will feel encouraged to participate in our church community.
The DCM will also help to support our community in knowing God, growing in their own faith, and serving faithfully in the world.
The DCM will work closely with our Senior and Associate Ministers to plan meaningful, and inspiring educational programs. Previous examples include, but are not limited to, coordinating middle school youth group, live Nativity pageant, Youth Sunday, Easter one room Sunday School and an Advent workshop.
As a whole, we see ourselves as one body of Christ, striving together to reflect light, fuel joy, promote learning, seek justice and help bring peace to God’s world. We are a historic church, part of the United Church of Christ, embodying Christian love, compassion and service since 1729.
