Children's Ministry November 2019
When children see that their teacher has a love for God and His word, they will be drawn to hear what she has to say about the Bible. The teacher’s energy multiplies a child's interest and their willingness to actively participate. We seek out teachers who have this contagious attitude and today we introduce you to a young woman who serves once a month leading our two year old class. Langley Thorp began attending our ONE28 student ministry while in junior high school over five years ago, and a year later her parents, Scott and Julie, made the decision to be a part of this body. Langley shares, “The more years that go by the more I grow to love this church family and enjoy their fellowship.”
Enrolled full-time at Citrus College studying cosmetology, Langley's passion and dream is to be a light among those who have used this field for vanity in darkness. She knows that being active in our young adult ministry gives her a strong foundation to shine for Jesus, “Since starting college I’ve been attending Crossroads and am grateful for every friendship I’ve made and the leaders that continue to help shape me into a godly woman as I embark into adulthood.”
Since Langley can remember, she has helped out in children's ministry and has enjoyed every minute of it. About three years ago, she started out in our nursery with the infants, then toddlers, and for the past year has been one of our 2 year old teachers. “My favorite part about teaching is seeing each one of these young ones mature, not only as they grow older, but as they mature in their knowledge of God. I get the pleasure as a teacher to see the sparkle in their eyes each week as their young minds start to understand the stories from the Bible. That look is what inspires and encourages me to be a teacher they look up to and remember as they gain more and more knowledge here at Foothill Bible Church. I have a huge passion for children and look forward to their funny personalities each week and can’t wait to see them grow in their relationship with the Lord.”

Children age 6 through 6th grade will be dismissed prior to the sermon on Sunday mornings and line up outside the Worship Center where the teacher will then walk them to the Chapel. Each week the Bible lessons listed above will be taught. Our teachers this month are Mrs. Fonda Wilson, Mrs. Kathy Johnson, and Mrs. Sheila Sutton.
Parents are to pick up their children from the Chapel directly after the service ends.
