What are you doing this summer?
This summer I am working as the children's minister at Margaret Hank Cumberland Presbyterian church in Paducah Ky. My job is to pick out literature and other age appropriate materials for the youth, teach a Sunday school class, do an age appropriate bible study on Wednesday night and even add a few random fun activities like Put-Put, baseball games, Luaus, movie days and my favorite of all plan vacation bible school. Bible school is something that is consuming most of my time at this point but I am so excited to see what God has in store for it!
How did you get involved with Margaret Hank C.P.?

I have been at Margaret Hank since September but didn't really have that much time to spend with the kids until this summer because I was in school. They are great to work with and each has their own unique personality to share with the world. This is an experience I would not trade for the world. After all I get to do what I love, work with kids and plan fun activities for them.

Have you participated in anything else this summer?
I have also had a great opportunity to do some community service this summer; the biggest thing was a “stuff the truck” event to benefit those affected by the Alabama tornado. We took donations of clothes, food, toys and totalities in hope to fill a semi to be unloaded at a community center serving food and trying to meet basic needs in the time of disaster.
