This Summer in Children's Ministry

Summer began unlike past summers here in Children's Ministry.......

Tree House Children's Ministry Director, Jeni Carlson, resigned to move to the next adventure that God had in store for her, and Cindy Yarrington and myself (Rhiannon Rutledge)  stepped up to Co-Lead this ministry and we are loving where God is leading.  God has taken this opportunity to grow us in so many ways and is leading us on an exciting path in to this season.  

This summer was the second year that I  had the opportunity to be part of our incredible VBS experience, where we had the immense excitement of 212 kids joining the 125 volunteers that stepped up to make it an amazing week! The set was incredible, snacks were yummy, the games energizing, the music electrifying and the teaching of the Word of God was brought to life in such a tangible way, that we had the privilege to observe 36 kids cross the line of faith and make first time decisions to follow Christ. 

One of my personal favorite parts of the summer was to spend time with church staff and volunteers to cast vision for the fall. God has been doing exciting things in Cindy and I's hearts and we are so excited to share those with you in the coming weeks and months! 

Stay tuned as we share what God is dong in Tree House Children's Ministry to reach the hearts of our beautiful and blessed young ones here at Five Oaks.
