In Deep Gratitude For Faithful Ministry

Written by: Julia Smolucha

 

By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

This week, Anne Faurot resigned from her role as Assistant Director of Children’s Ministry, after 10 years of ministry at Kenilworth Union Church. She spent those ten years delighting in God’s presence with children, telling biblical stories, singing sacred songs, developing new programs and creating relationships with families. I have worked with Anne for six years, and in that time have seen her grow and expand her enthusiasm for creativity, for holy curiosity, and for new ways of “being church” in our changing world.

I hope you will join us to celebrate Anne’s ministry during worship on July 28. We will be collecting letters of gratitude for her ministry between now and July 28, which you can bring or send to the church office or email to Christine V. Hides.

Anne blueprinted the P*Wee Club outreach program for young children, grew our Children’s Ministry outreach, increased children’s participation in local mission agencies, introduced the Vacation Bible School program, and launched sacred storytelling through the Godly Play approach in the Mallot Chapel. Her ministry has reached the lives of hundreds of children and their families.
