Director of Children’s Ministry

I am excited to serve God as the Interim Children’s Director.  As a member of Bayshore since 1985, I have served in various ministries in the Nursery, Children and Youth departments and now have the opportunity to serve as the Children’s Director.  Though I feel inadequate for all that is required to do the Lord’s work, especially with His precious young children, I know that as I seek His will,  He will provide.

In a recent Bible Study, God used this verse to give me comfort and peace.

Hebrews 13:20 & 21  Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

We are all called to serve Him.  I look forward to working alongside my church family as we nurture and grow God’s children, to His glory!
