Children and youth are not just the “church of tomorrow” they are a vital part of our church today!
Amy Borjas has been leading our family ministry here at Platt Park and I am immensely grateful for her heart and passion in leading this area of our church. Amy and her husband Eddie and their three children are relocating to Spokane, WA for Eddie’s new job. It has truly been a pleasure to serve Christ with Amy at Platt Park Church. She has not only taken the program forward by leaps and bounds but has done it in the power of God’s spirit. I honor the work, both visible and behind the scenes invisible, that she has done here as Family Life Pastor. Amy has impacted many lives and I am grateful for all of her hard work, love & unseen sacrifices. We are going to miss her and her family immensely. I will always thank God for the time in ministry we’ve shared together.
As we look forward, I am absolutely thrilled that Anne Coughlin will be joining our staff team to lead the nursery & preschool ministry among families. Also Ginny Allison (who has been serving alongside Amy in a support role) is going to be stepping up to lead the ministry for kids beyond preschool! I am just thrilled that God has brought such wonderful, competent and fun-to-work with people to our team.
Please join me in appreciating Amy, welcoming Anne, and if you haven’t had the chance to meet Ginny, I hope you will soon.
This Sunday we will be hosting a chili-cook off after 2nd service. This is a chance to “Meet the home team” members of Platt Park Church’s’ leadership team including our staff, elders & brand new deacon board!
I am so very grateful.
