One of the hallmarks of our church’s ministry is that we invest in children and youth. This update is intended to inform our church community about the process to plan for future staffing for youth and children’s ministry.
At present, staffing for children and youth ministry is comprised of two part time coordinators: Jess Boose for youth ministry and Sally Tomasetti for children’s ministries, and one part time co-coordinator, Maddie Downer, who is filling an interim position until this June. We are thankful for the good work of Jess, Sally, and Maddie as they work with the congregation to provide excellent ministry with children and youth.
In the fall of 2014, with the arrival of Rev. Matt Wooster, the Deacons began a process of discernment about staffing for children and youth ministry in the future. This process began with the Deacons because this position was formerly held by a called associate minister, but the discernment to date has included input from various officers and committee members and the work of a discernment group comprised of parents and youth leaders.
On Sunday, March 1, following worship, we invite you to attend a presentation and listening session about the future of this interim role for youth and children’s ministry staffing. As this congregation maintains vibrant ministry with children, youth, and families, we take this time to look toward the future with hope and trust.
