Children's Ministry Spotlight: Cindy Nielsen
We have so many outstanding people who volunteer in our children's ministry. We feel it is important to highlight a few of them.
Cindy Nielsen has played a vital role in our children's ministry. As a 2nd and 3rd grade Sunday School teacher, Cindy, along with her children, Bryce & Sophia, have cared well for our children two Sunday's a month for several years. In fact, Cindy has been teaching for nearly 6 years, and has ministred to many of our children at Willow Creek Church!
This volunteer spotlight is very bittersweet, as Cindy has decided to step down from teaching at the end of the school year. The children love Cindy and her kids, especially when she brings in props, skits, and candy (which is almost everytime she serves.) The most unique quality about Cindy's style of teaching is that she understands a child's need to visually engage with the material they are learning. No matter what the material is, Cindy always has visual aids to bring the Bible to life in a practical way for our children.
We have been so blessed by Cindy, Bryce, and Sophia. I personally loved seeing Cindy lead a group of children at Vacation Bible School, noticing how she had full control of more than 30 children, without once raising her voice or seeming at all upset. She is a consummate professional, and the Lord has done mighty things through her.
God continues to move our church forward, and we wish Cindy and the Nielsen family the best as they seek to love people and point them to the good news of Jesus Christ in and around Seminole County. Thank you Cindy Nielsen for your faithful service to Willow Creek Church and for loving our Lord, our children, and our church family so well!
