Floating Sunday School Teacher - Somerville, MA


Our arts-and-justice-oriented, LGBTQ-affirming, progressive faith community, First Church Somerville UCC, is in search of a flexible person who will be available weekly on Sundays to help out as a “Floater” in various Sunday School classrooms.

Description: Each Sunday, we are in need of a person to serve as a “floater” in our Sunday school program. Typically this will involve filling in as a second teacher in our youngest classroom. Other times, you will teach lessons in one of our four classrooms as needed. Your job is to be a warm, kind teacher, a second pair of hands and eyes in the room; to help out as needed if kids need help finding art supplies; or need some gentle prodding to sit still during story time; or need a person to play trains or legos with them in the nursery.

You are: a person who is willing to work with and within a faith community like First Church Somerville, loving, creative, progressive in your social views, responsible, enthusiastic, & at least 18 years old. We would prefer applicants who are available throughout the year and who are interested in longer-term commitments. The Director of Family Ministry will provide support on site and with lesson planning. Experience with Godly Play welcomed, but not required. Ability to attend Godly Play training in the New England region helpful. See www.godlyplayfoundation.org for more information about Godly Play.

Hours and compensation: School hours are 9:45-11:15 AM. Pay is $40/week, 34 weeks per year (there is no Sunday School one week per month).
