Sandy Sumner, Children's Director

I became a Christian at the age of 9 after attending many Sunday School Days, VBS programs, GA’s, and camps.  I remember at camp the Lord speaking to me and I just couldn’t say anything out loud.  Later, I took the step down the isle to talk to my pastor.  Since that day, I have known that my heart and soul belongs to Jesus and I look forward to seeing him one day in heaven.  I studied nursing for several years and was always led back to working with children.  I had a home daycare for several years and worked with children in an afterschool program.  I enjoy ministering to children and seeing them grow in their faith and walk with the Lord.

Matthew 18:3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
