One of our Kids Connect Small Group Leaders on Wednesday nights is Ms. Michelle. Ms. Michelle has been attending FUMC since 2007. She’s served in Children’s Ministry for 11 years.
She’s also served on Leadership Team as Shine Coach, leading the Joyful Jingle project, and last but not least, being a SGL for the 8th grade girls!
When she’s not busy influencing the faith of the next generation, she’s busy educating them. She is a first grade teacher for the Chambersburg School District.
I’m just putting this out there: Ms. Michelle deserves major kudos for investing in kids like she does. On Wednesdays she is with kids ALL. DAY. LONG. We pray God continues to strengthen her and keep her sane!
For Michelle, the most rewarding part of being a SGL is making connections with the kids and having them want to learn more about God and keep coming back each week! She loves to see them get excited!
When asked what is the most fun part of being a SGL is for her, she replied, “Playing crazy games with the kids!”
Ms. Michelle would absolutely recommend being a SGL! She makes a great point too. In her words, the “only requirement is that you love God… and share that with the kids!” Very true!
Her favorite Bible verse is John 14:27 –
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (NIV)
