Chapelwood Children exists to strengthen the lives of children and their families by imparting upon them the love and grace we find through Jesus Christ. We want to partner with parents to help children experience God and know that in Christ we find strength, promise, hope, and love. We pray that children:

*Know God is real, relevant, and active in their lives.

*Experience God in church, home, and in the world.

*Encounter the power of prayer.

*Become seekers of Scripture

My primary focus areas as the Upper Room Ministry Coordinator are the cultivation of relationships with our members, volunteers, and guests along with the creation and expansion of a culture of service, volunteerism, and missions while executing and maintaining logistical and administrative systems.

Something on my bucket list:

My favorite childhood memory:

One time I saw a commercial for a pretty watch… I asked my dad if I could have it (I had never done that before) and he said yes! I still remember the day the mailman delivered the package. I learned what C.O.D. meant. It was a special moment watching my dad pay for something I had asked for that I didn’t need.

My favorite scripture:

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3
