Q&A with our Mother’s Morning Out and Nursery Director

What is your vision for your position?  

My vision is to create an environment that makes children want to go to church.  I truly believe that children play a huge role in guiding their parent’s faith; if a child is happy to be at church then parents are more likely to continue attending and growing in faith.

Where would you like to see your ministry in 5 years?  

I would like for our nursery numbers to continue to grow!  I look forward to continuing to provide a safe, nurturing environment during weekly church services, along with Bible studies and other faith growing events.  I want new parents to know that there are resources here at the church to help them navigate the early years of their child’s life.

Where are you praying for people to help?  

Volunteers are always welcome!  I pray that parents consider giving their time to love and nurture the children who are the future of our church!
