What I do

My Job
My job is my dream job - working for my church and getting to share the love of Jesus with kids!  Whether it’s through Sunday School, AWANA, Vacation Bible School, Camp, or lots of other opportunities, we believe that kids learn through their play, and if we’re smart that’s how we teach them!

About Me

My background
I’m married to Chuck and we have 3 teenage daughters.  (Yes, those are some grey hairs you see.)  We’ve been FBC members since 1998 and I came on staff in 2006.  I’m originally from Hueytown, Alabama and I have a Counseling and Guidance degree from the University of Montevallo.

Why I Follow Christ
Jesus is my Rock.  Everything good I have is from Him.  Why would I want to follow anyone or anything else?

Ask me about
Wonder Woman!  I love superheroes, Star Wars, Star Trek, and most areas of geekdom.  My husband also says I have a baking addiction.  I don't think it's a problem.

We know that coming to a new place can be stressful to both parents and kids, so here’s some information that can help make transitions smoother.  (Smoother transitions = Happier Kids.  Happier Kids = Happier Mommies and Daddies.  SCORE!)

Whether you’re coming on Sunday morning for Sunday School or Children’s Church, or on a Wednesday night for AWANA, your best place to start is at the hub – the Family Life Center desk!  The Family Life Center is the building farthest to the back of campus, park in the big parking lot across from the Kroger gas station and come on in!

Good things for you to know:

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of service time.  You’ll be filling out security tags for your preschoolers on a Sunday.  On a Wednesday you’ll fill out a once per year AWANA Registration Form for each child.
  • Safety and security are very important to us.  All of our volunteers are background checked and are trained in our Policies and Procedures.
  • If you have a little one who is crying or upset at drop off, take heart!  If we cannot calm down your child in 15 minutes we’ll come let you know.  That doesn’t mean you have to come get your child, but that way if you don’t hear from us, you can know that your child is doing fine.  If a child cries, stops crying, and then starts again, we start the 15 minutes over.  We know that in order for you to enjoy and engage where you are, you have to feel comfortable that your precious kiddos are well cared for.  They will be.

Kids learn through their play so we have a ton of fun here at First Baptist Church Richmond Hill teaching them about God!  Honestly it doesn’t happen by accident.  Even the littlest ones can experience that church is a good and safe place.  Children are precious to God and we know that.

1 Thessalonians 2:7- “We proved gentle among you, as a mother tenderly cares for her own children.  Having so fond an affection for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you have become very dear to us.”

Let's get together!
