Dear Families,

I am so thankful and blessed to be the Children’s Minister here at Christ UMC.  As I have told many of you, I feel that I am on a mission!  It is my mission to help each child and their families know and love Jesus.  We are so very excited about the future of our Children’s Ministry.  I know that God will lead us on an amazing journey!

As we move forward and grow our ministry, please continue to pray for all of our families, current leaders and future leaders within our church!

If you feel called to be a part of our amazing, fulfilling and uplifting ministry to lead and mentor the children of our church, step up and give it a try!  The kids are here waiting for you!  God is good!

God has hand-picked servants within this church to serve as the core leadership team for ChristKids ministries. We strongly believe in putting the right people in the right spots (Jim Collins paraphrased, Good to Great), and not just filling a role because we have a spot to fill. We want to know your spiritual gifts and plug you into a role that will glorify God and bring you much joy. Below are the names of our leadership team. Please pray for these team members as they guide our children, leaders, and programs.
