Ms. Paula is the SGL on the 2nd-5th Sundays. Ms. Paula has been at FUMC for over 20 years. She has been serving in Children’s Ministry for 14 years.
Ms. Paula has a huge heart for children. She loves to listen to them and watch them. She has incredible patience. Her gift is being able to spend time with kids and just enjoy their presence without getting frustrated or impatient.
In addition to serving as a Kindergarten/1st Grade SGL on Sundays in Children’s Ministry she also serves as a SGL on Wednesday nights.
For Ms. Paula the most fun part of being a SGL is seeing how the children interact with one another. If you want to hear how wonderful your child is, ask Ms. Paula. She sees each child as a unique and bright shining light! And we all need someone who sees us that way.
Her favorite Bible verse is –
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the
people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:8-14
