Get to Know is a weekly feature that highlights leaders within our church, how they serve, and any insights they can share.
In 10 words or less, tell us how you serve at Hulen Street.
I serve as a preschool teacher twice a month in the 11:00 One’s class.
How long have you been with Hulen Street?
We started attending Hulen Street in July of 2015. We loved it and decided to become partners in August of 2015!
What's the best part about serving?
I love getting to know the kids and the parents of the kids.I also love it when the kids begin to feel more comfortable in the class because they see a familiar face! When the kids are more comfortable, there is greater opportunity for them to engage and learn more about Jesus! Plus I have always found it to be true that when I serve in the church, I find great joy and grow more in my relationship with the Lord. It is always more blessed to give than to receive.
What is the biggest challenge you face in serving?
The biggest challenge I face in serving is missing the worship service. But I’m thankful I can still listen to the sermon online during the week!
How did you get started serving?
Not long after we became partners, we had our third child, so it was hard to commit to serve with a newborn. But once we got in a good rhythm, I told Karen I was ready to jump in to serve! Because there is such a need for preschool teachers, she put me on the schedule right away.
What is something the Spirit is teaching you lately?
The Spirit has been reminding me to walk in the Spirit. As a mom of three little kids, it is often hectic and busy. I want to practice God’s presence in every moment of every day. Some days are better than others, but I am growing in this! :)
