Liberal/Progressive Church is seeking Christian Education Staff
One paid Sunday School Teacher is needed for bright, energetic small groups of toddler/pre-K and elementary school age children at Old Cambridge Baptist Church (OCBC) in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Currently, children who attend OCBC are ages 5-8. We are looking for a progressive Christian who is comfortable leading prayer/short worship experiences as well as reading and teaching Bible stories. The paid teacher will coordinate with and have assistance from OCBC adult volunteers on Sunday mornings, but will be responsible for preparation and primary facilitation of the class. OCBC is deeply involved in the ministries of social justice, community building, spiritual life, and the arts. We are a small diverse and welcoming community actively advocating for the civil and ecclesiastical rights of all God's people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual or affectional orientation. Our children are bright and loving, and will bless whoever works with them. We are using a well-designed Bible focused multi-age curriculum that has good leader's materials.
The position will be supervised by the chair of the Christian Education Committee. The positions can qualify for Harvard Divinity School Field Experience Program, and if applicable, would be jointly supervised by Rev. Dr. Cody J. Sanders (who is a certified Harvard Field Education Supervisor).
