My work at First Presbyterian was truly rewarding for me. I was their A1 Audio Engineer until I moved from Houston to Austin. I enjoyed running sound at the church. Nice and wholesome environment to work in
I really enjoyed learning with kids and receiving such wonderful hugs daily.

First Presbyterian Church is good environment to work in and to meet new people. Nice atmosphere and coworkers to rely on. I learn new technquies when handling children because of the age group we have. The hardest part of the job is there is limited room and people to look over the kids and at times there are over a dozen but some are old enough that we can rely on them to be good so we can watch over the younger ones. We read to them and teach them new skills for them to use when they grow up.
Good environment and place to grow
Once a week and only about two and half hours of work

Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – January 25, 2016
This job was very flexible with my school schedule. They were understanding of my other duties outside of the church. I learned how to work with children in a structured way by creating lesson plans and helping children with everyday activities. The co-workers are friendly and helpful. The hardest part was leaving the children and watching them move on.
Providing Pastoral Care and Teaching brings me great joy. *At First Presbyterian Church in Mabank, Texas, I taught Adult Sunday School Classes as well as Vacation Bible School. I also served as the Youth Sponsor to the Synod of the Sun Youth Gathering in Tulsa, Okla. *I took communion and provided pastoral care to the ill and shut-ins. *I facilitated a weekly support group for on-going illnesses for church and community members. *I taught a volunteer training class for those who wanted to provide pastoral support to members of the church and the community.

A typical day at work began with my arrival anywhere from 8 AM to 9 AM and clocking in. Each day was usually different depending on what was going on. Often we would set up various rooms in the church for meetings, luncheons and Sunday school classes. The church was large so there was a lot of activity going on. My co-workers were fun to be around. They were great, hard-working men and women who kept the church activity afloat. The hardest part of my job was figuring out how exactly each room was supposed to be set up and stripping the floors. The most enjoyable part of my job was the sense of humor among the staff.
Working in my church.
Some days there wasn't much to do and it would get a little boring.
First Presbyterian Church was a fun and productive workplace that made going to work something to look forward to every morning. The management at First Presbyterian church was great and I the church members were very helpful and supportive. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to keep up with all of the books and having the responsibility to write checks, do bank drafts, do deposits, reconcile bank statements and do bulletins for the weekly church services. I can not pick out a bad thing about the job at FBC.
Nursery Caregiver (Former Employee) – Douglasville, GA – September 30, 2015
Seeing the little ones smile, listening to the babbling and cooing, watching the toddlers interact with others for the first time... these are all great reasons to work with little ones. But to work in a church where morals and ethics are the same as yours is indescribable. And to hear "thank you" from a parent who was nervous leaving their little one for the first time just lifts you up.
I was point of contact when anyone came through the front doors of the Church lobby. I had computer assignments of data entry for different departments of the organization. I enjoyed assisting visitors with their needs. Learned more compassion to assist visitors with their most dire needs. All coworkers were a very fair, friendly and honest team to work with. All aspects of my employment duties were enjoyable to me.

Had great fun playing and teaching the young boys and girls. Every day was a new challenge and experience. The children were all very special, and they enjoyed the interaction with each other. I was there only on a temp bases, and I was very sad when my job had ended.
