Coordinator of Christian Education & Small Group Ministries I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Russ, for 40 years. Russ is currently a certified lay minister serving at Grace United Methodist Church in Kennard. We have 3 grown children, Hannah, Charles and Kevin. Charles is married to Tera and completes our family with two step-granddaughters and one new grandson. I was blessed to be born into a family that believed in going to church every week and have been involved in Sunday School teaching or leading music since I was in high school. My passion is to make our church a place that welcomes new members and that our children feel they belong. I believe the phrase “Sunday School is for Life!” and know that this job has been a very important part of my faith journey.
