Personal note from the of Youth Ministries:

I am quite humbled by the huge welcome my husband and I have received here at First United Methodist Church. It has been refreshing to attend a church where everyone knows everyone (or close to it). My husband and I have prayed for a congregation where we can truly grow our roots; you all are an answer to those prayers!

I am quite excited about the opportunity to be the Director of Youth Ministries and plan to make every effort to teach the students about our Lord while creating a safe space for them to wrestle with their beliefs. Fostering a relationship with Christ is of the utmost importance and I intend to teach them the tools they will need in order to have a fruitful life walking deeply with Jesus, if they choose to do so.
I am constantly reminded of the words of Isaiah, "If you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all." As the world continues, destruction and divide progresses. If we are not firm in our faith and trust in Jesus, then we too will be divided and destroyed. My hope for the youth and future generations to come is that they know Jesus intimately and have a faith where they are able to stand firmly on so that they bring peace as they walk in the way God has for them.

Please continue to join me in prayer over our youth. Pray that they may be led in wisdom, have a teachable heart, and choose to walk deeply with the Lord God. Pray also for me, that I may always have a humble heart before the Lord and guide the students in the way they need.

"We were created out of love, for Love."
