My passion for this church and the program began when I was only 10 years old. Our family joined in 1980 and I have fond memories of growing up in this church. After high school, I received my Bachelor and Master degrees in elementary education. I taught for seven years before having a family.
I was a stay at home mom with my three young children, George, Claudia and Margi until I began ministering the young families in our church.
The ministry includes Godly Play for ages 3 years old to 3rd grade, which encourages children to use their curiosity and imagination to experience the mystery and joy of God, and for 4th and 5th grade the “We Believe” program, which explores the New Testament one year and the Old Testament the next. I also facilitate several family events and mission activities throughout the year.
