Let’s Celebrate! Meet Volunteer of the Week…Megan Syring! Megan jumped in and joined our Early Childhood Backyard Team in January. She serves every Saturday at 3:45. She does an amazing job leading the way in showing love and honor to every single child and team member. Megan is dedicated, organized and always a joy to be around. We are so grateful to have her on our team. Thank you, Megan, the best is yet to come!
I am excited to announce a staff update! We’ve been working diligently to find a new Backyard Volunteer Coordinator since the consolidation this year of the Garden/Nursery (birth-2’s) and Backyard (3 years-Kindergarten). I’m SUPER EXCITED to announce that process has ended.
Carrie Lyons will be coming on staff effective May 3rd. She will fill my previous role as the Volunteer Coordinator in the Backyard. Carrie has already been serving in a leadership role of “Coach” on the Backyard team.
Here is the new consolidated structure of our Early Childhood Ministry (Birth – Kindergarten):
- Jill Shea – Focusing on leadership development – developing our team leaders and coaches and general oversight of the department.
- Lisa Dorman – Your go-to person for curriculum.
- Amelia Goetschel – Garden/Nursery Coordinator (birth – 2s)
- Carrie Lyons – Backyard Coordinator (3s – Kindergarten)
Below is Carrie’s bio so you can get to know a little bit about her.
I am a very proud mother of 4, and grandmother of 3 beautiful children. Two of my children attend Parkview with my husband and I, as well as my grandchildren. I’m a personal trainer part time, and love to run races with my daughter when we have the opportunity.
My husband John and I have been attending Parkview for 4 years now. We love the environment and the messages that we receive every week! I lead a small group for Parkview’s Women Bible Study and have been serving in Parkview Kids for three years and really enjoy it! I’m very excited to be a part of the staff here at Parkview, and as always I’m looking forward to what God has in store for me!
I hope you’ll pray for Carrie as she transitions into a new chapter of life and ministry.
What does this mean for you? You will not notice a huge change. If you serve in the Backyard (3s-kindergarten), your scheduling needs and point person will transition to Carrie in May. I will still be floating around on the weekends overseeing both the Nursery/Garden and Backyard.
This new structure will provide us with departmental consistency and cohesiveness and it sets us up great for whatever growth God plans to send our way. We are averaging 10 – 25 new families every weekend. WOWSER!
Please let me know if you have any questions and THANK YOU for being a part of what God is doing at Parkview. You are more than you know!
BIG hugs and much love,
“Go and make disciples of all nations.” Matthew 28:19
