Ms. Tammy is the 2nd and 3rd grade SGL. She has been a member of FUMC for 61 years on March 9th (her birthday)! She’s been serving in Children’s Ministry for 42 years! It’s truly remarkable. What a blessing to us she has been!
When she is not influencing the faith of the next generation as a SGL, she is busy three days a week babysitting her 5-month-old grandson and 3 1/2-year-old granddaughter at her daughter’s house in Collegeville, PA. She also enjoys scrapbooking and is pretty awesome at it if some of the cards she’s given me are any indication 🙂
Ms. Tammy retired 3 1/2 years ago after working at Letterkenny Army Depot for 38 years. Right now, Ms. Tammy is active in Children’s Ministry but she has also served on Nominating Committee, Christian Education, Building Study Team, and Staff Parish in the past. She’s also been involved in elementary school and Girl Scout activities, women’s softball, and co-ed volleyball.
The most rewarding part of being a SGL to Tammy is teaching the kids about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and seeing the knowledge and understanding they have to live a Godly life starting at a young age.
The most fun part? Watching them grow in their faith.
As for recommending the role of SGL, Ms. Tammy says, “Yes I would! You will be greatly rewarded by learning more about God, Jesus, & the Holy Spirit through the eyes of the children! As Matthew 18:3 states, ‘And he said … unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.’”
Her favorite Bible verse is –
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing…Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. (Psalm 23 NIV)
