Ministry close to your heart?
Besides children’s ministry, I love our Age-to-Age Friends program that partners our youth and older adults together in friendship. It’s been so exciting to see God grow sweet relationships across the generations.
If I have a free afternoon, I can probably be found...
hiking or riding our tandem bike with Craig (in the summer), or curled up in front of the fireplace with a good book (in the winter).
