Children’s Ministry

In case you missed it, during worship on May 20th, we honored our children’s ministry servant leaders by giving each one a food item that they in turn brought forward as an offering. Some of our food items represented the ministry areas in which our volunteers serve; others did not. But just like our volunteers, all of our donations were high-quality and provide important nourishment. Believe it or not, this year we had over seventy volunteers who shared their time, energy and love in children’s ministry. That means seventy food items went to the North County Food Bank! If you served in children’s ministry this year, please know how grateful we are for your faithful service, and please know that, not only have you shared God’s love with the children in our church and community, you have also helped our neighbors who are hungry. Thank you!
May Highlights

  • A lively game of Jeopardy in Sunday school where each team earned $10 for the charity of their choice (including Compassion International, North County Food Bank, Shine Art Center, and World Relief)

  • Our end-of-the-year Family Fiesta where kids and parents enjoyed games, dinner (including enchiladas made by the kids!), and a time of worship led by the kids

  • Hiring Brenna Stanfield* as our cooperative preschool director.
    *Brenna is a natural leader and has much to offer Colbert’s preschool ministry. Not only is she gifted in teaching children in a positive and playful manner, she has excellent relational and pastoral skills that will help her nurture a cooperative learning environment for kids and adults. Also, Brenna is a visionary and is already dreaming about how we can build off of this year to have a wonderful year next year of "learning and growing as children of God".
