Ms. Bobbi is the SGL on 3rd and 4th Sundays. Ms. Bobbi has been attending FUMC for 32 years and has served in Children’s Ministry for 28 years.
When Ms. Bobbi is not influencing the faith of the next generation at church, she’s educating them as a substitute teacher for the Chambersburg Area School District. She also volunteers at the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter and the Tuscarora Wildlife Education Project.
For Ms. Bobbi the most rewarding part of being a Small Group Leader is “watching the kiddos learn and grow in their faith, even at their young age. Sometimes, they surprise me with their knowledge”.
Ms. Bobbi is so creative and enjoys doing craft projects with the kids, even the messier ones. As a parent, I appreciate the patience she has with all the kids as they make ‘masterpieces’, or in my case, take all the supplies and stuff them into a bag he wears around his neck!
For Ms. Bobbi, though, the most fun part of being a Small Group Leader is seeing the kids’ enthusiasm and excitement. “It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, they are always excited about learning!”
I asked Ms. Bobbi if she would recommend being a Small Group Leader to other members of FUMC. She replied, “YES! It’s very rewarding. Sometimes I think I learn as much from them as they learn from me!”
Her favorite Bible verses are –
I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
