opportunities to serve

Each year, we are blessed by the countless ways in which parents, grandparents, and friends of our school volunteer their time and talents to help make Moline Christian School a great place of learning.  

Looking for ways to serve and stay connected?  We could use your help!  

  • Volunteer Librarians

    Our library is full of wonderful books, and we're looking for parents who love books and children to serve as volunteer librarians.  If you can volunteer a half-day one or more times per month, we'll train you how to check books in and out.   If interested, please contact our head librarian, Marilyn VanderLaan.

  • School Circle

    Moline Christian School Circle is looking for parents to aid us in fundraising, promotion, classroom activities, and simply supporting the teachers to join us.  We meet five times per year on Mondays.  Please join us!
