In Early Life, we are learning about God’s Wonderful Gift. When we see the title of this, we may be reminded of the Resurrection and the Easter Sunday we just celebrated. However, this is a different gift – the Gift of the Holy Spirit. The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and given the authority and power to continue Jesus’ work here on earth. And that power lives in us. WOW!! Click on the Early Life link below to learn more about this special gift!
In Elementary Ministry, we are continuing our study about Jesus’ last days with his disciples. This week, we are looking at when Jesus gave The Great Commission. God has given us a mission and gives us power through the Holy Spirit to obey this calling. Follow the Elementary Link below for more information about our lesson and activities to do with your children.

In Elementary Ministry, we are taking a break the next two weeks from our study about Jesus’ last 40 days with his disciples for Easter and Spring Break. We are so excited to celebrate Easter together! Follow the Elementary Link below for a few ways to continue learning and have fun together as a family during this break.
During the Sundays of Lent (February 21 – April 4), we will be looking at the seven I AM statements said by Jesus as recorded in the Book of John. We have put together a Family Devotional about the I AM statements. This devotional has Bible studies, games, crafts and coloring pages for families to learn together during the Lenten Season. We hope you will take a look! For Easter this week, we will learn about Jesus as the True Vine! Don’t miss it!

In Early Life for the Sixth Sunday in Lent, we are learning about Jesus and his arrival into Jerusalem. It is Palm Sunday! We are learning about worship. You can worship through singing, praying, and serving. Click on the Early Life button to see how you can sign up to serve a meal to the men staying at our facility for April and May this year.
In Elementary Ministry, we are continuing our study about Jesus’ last days with his disciples. This week, we are looking at a special breakfast that Jesus had with some of his disciples. One of his disciples, Peter, was there. Peter had denied that he was Jesus’ disciple and may not have felt worthy of being a disciple anymore. At the breakfast, Jesus restored Peter to ministry. As we study this story, emphasize to your children that Jesus’ plan for the disciples did not end with His death and resurrection.

MORE ABOUT EARLY LIFE AND ELEMENTARY
We believe that the more you know Jesus, the more you know what really matters! Our key verse for ministry is: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
Here’s a few more things about our staff team:
Early Life Director
I love to see parents and preschoolers singing songs, learning about the Lord, and learning to love each other and grow as a family in the first years of life. God has a special place in his heart for the youngest people in our church! We have such an opportunity to share with babies and preschoolers, firsthand, just how much God loves them.
I’m married, with two teenagers and a dog. I love to hang out with my family boating, skiing, or doing anything outside, but also love a good book by the fire or a chat over coffee with friends.
I love introducing children to the Gospel Story of the Bible and helping them become lifelong disciples of Jesus. I love the humor, the hugs, and the honesty of elementary children. I grew up at Westminster and found it a great place to learn and develop my faith and gifts. My hope is that elementary children will feel that Westminster is their church where they can learn to love like Jesus and develop their gifts.
My husband Dan and I have 3 children who are all adults now. In my free time, I enjoy reading, history, hot tea, and doing jigsaw puzzles with my husband Dan.
