    My family is interested in working with the children’s program in some way. I used to teach early service Sunday school for kindergarten and would be interested in doing that again. My daughters and I am available evenings and Sundays to help in any way. Available to coach sports, tudor, chair events for the kids for special events. We also have been involved in music (band) and dance. We know some programs are winding down, but willing to help this summer where needed.
    Looking forward to seeing if we can be of help.

      Hi Tracy,
      I am currently the Director of Children’s Ministries at Westwood UMC and would love to meet you to discuss children’s ministry. Would you be available next Monday or Wednesday morning to meet at the church?
