eCHAT and CHAT Volunteers

We appreciate your help as we work together to provide a safe and effective environment for our kids to learn in! We are asking that each family sign up for one volunteer slot per semester.

The online signup is at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e44acaf2ca57-chat16

Note:  This is for the Spring 2022 volunteer positions.  The Fall 2022 signup will be posted in early August.

Description of Volunteer Positions:

Location details:

  • South Door - This is the South Entrance, which is the only door that CHAT will be using.  We will have a volunteer stationed here at all times checking IDs.

  • Commons - This is called the Glory Cafe on the church map.  It is the area on the main level outside the worship center.

This volunteer will hang out in the Commons area upstairs.  (The Wednesday monitor will also wash tables after the eCHAT lunch, and check on students in the student lounge a couple of times.)  You are welcome to have your younger kids with you. Please pick up your name tag at the monitor table by the South Entrance.

South Door Monitor - South Entrance Door

This volunteer will sit inside the South Entrance at the monitor table. It is your responsibility to check student IDs and confirm parents entering are CHAT parents.

You are welcome to have your other kids with you and do school with them or other quiet activities during this time if you'd like. 

Student Lounge Monitor - Youth Center

This volunteer will be based in the Student Lounge (Youth Center). Your responsibility is to oversee the students in the Student Lounge and make sure students pick up after themselves at the end of the period. Please pick up your name tag at the monitor table by the South Entrance.

These positions involve helping with our Christmas Celebration evening. We will need volunteers to help set up, get the refreshments table ready, assist with rehearsal, help with traffic flow before the performance (ushers), help with refreshments during the reception time, and help with clean-up. These positions are listed separately on SignUpGenius.

Christmas Celebration Program Helper  (Fall Semester)

This volunteer will help print (at Cross of Glory) and fold the programs for the Christmas Celebration or the Spring Showcase.  This is best done in the morning to allow time for folding.

 

Signing up for Volunteer Positions

Signup for the current semester is online (see link at the top of this page). Parents will need to create an account at SignUpGenius the first time they submit their signup.  This verifies your signup position, allows you to make swaps with other moms if necessary, and allows you to receive an email reminder 2 days before the date you signed up for. Spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents who fail to sign up will either be assigned spots by CHAT or charged the buy-out fee.

Canceling and Swapping

What to do if you can’t make your volunteer time: Please do your best to find a replacement. You can go back to the SignUpGenius and look for someone who is doing your job on a different day. Look them up on the family roster that will be emailed to you at the beginning of the school year. If you can’t find a replacement (maybe it’s too last minute), please let Laura know. You will pay the buyout fee of $25, and she will find a replacement. We will try to give you an opportunity to volunteer again to get your buyout fee back.

A Final Point

Thank you for your time in volunteering.  If you would like to sign up for more than the one spot we are requesting, feel free to do so!
