We are THRILLED to see how God is moving in Parkview’s Children’s Ministry! This is the first week we get to consolidate our two teams the Garden (Nursery) and Backyard (Preschool/Kindergarten). Welcome everyone!
Lisa Dorman and myself started working in the nursery years ago and we are super excited about now being one team and unified!
“The first five years of a child’s life are the most formative. Much of what a person becomes is developed during this time with the first three years being the most critical. The above one minute video is a great reminder that when you minister to children you will see fruit NOW in their lives and LATER when they are adults.
Researchers said though personality plays a big role in how kids turn out as adults…they also documented that life events are also a major determining factor.
As a children’s ministry team member, we have the unique privilege of influencing children at the most important time in their life. What you teach them will not only make a difference in their lives now, but will stay with them for the rest of their lives. You are helping shape their future!”
Let’s CONNECT! We have a private Facebook group for our team which is a fantastic way for us to get to know one another better. Our Parkview EC Facebook group is a for volunteers on the Early Childhood Team at Parkview (birth through Kindergarten). The ‘EC’ Team ROCKS! This is a safe place to share, grow in our faith, encourage, laugh and build relationships. Let’s grow and prosper according to God’s word. Friend me up at http://facebook.com/jillashea and include a note that you are on our team so I can add you to our private FB group.
As we get to know one another better, let’s ENCOURAGE each other and CELEBRATE what each of you are doing for His kingdom. Every week we put the spotlight on one of our AWESOME team members. We will now rotate every week between the Backyard and Garden team members.
Let’s CELEBRATE! Meet this week’s Volunteer of the Week…Kevin Fox!
Kevin joined our team almost two years ago and serves faithfully every Sunday in the Backyard at 11:00am and recently added a second service and now also serves at 9:00am. He is reliable, helpful and willing to go above and beyond. He started out serving in the four year old room and now serves outside the classroom assisting our coaches and coordinators by making sure all six of our Backyard classrooms are equipped and organized with their supplies. He will assist our coaches and coordinators with any requests. He is kind, patient and willing to do whatever it takes to help. We are so grateful to have him on our team. Thanks Kevin, the best is yet to come!
