Why volunteer with Children’s Ministry?

  • Children are the next generation in Ventura and the world. And they are people of great worth and value right now. Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” (Mark 9:37)
  • God has given each of us talents to share with others. This is a great place to share your gifts.
  • Whether you come with training or receive training as you serve with us, your skills & experience will affect children and families at Orchard each week.
  • Your investment in the lives of families and fellow volunteers at Orchard Community Church allows for a deeper community.
