These past few months of working with Michelle in my role as intern for Children and Family Ministries at NFC have flown by! I taught a wonderful bunch of kindergarteners in Sunday school and watched them grow and develop their relationship with Jesus and with one another. I also got to be part of game nights for the older kids. Planning intergenerational game nights allowed me to also see other members of the church.
My internship has been filled with many different opportunities and projects. A main project was developing the safety plan I hope many of you have heard about or seen if you teach Sunday school. It was a large, time-consuming project that we hope will give you peace in knowing outlines and procedures to be followed if an emergency were to happen. All the plans are laid out, so all you have to do is grab the handbook to know what to you need to do for each specific circumstance.
I am so glad I got to work with Michelle in Children and Family Ministries. It has taught me a lot about myself and has let me grow as an individual and as part of a team. Thank you to all who came to a game night or let me teach your children in Sunday school. It has been a blessing to do all of the activities I have done this year. I will not be the intern here next school year because I will be assigned a new placement. Have a wonderful summer break with your kiddos. Maybe I will see some of you around town. Hope so!
