The Chapelwood Recreation Ministry is a center of activity, where we show the love of Christ through sports leagues, fitness classes, summer camps and other recreational programs.  Our purpose is to offer people of all ages the opportunities to experience Christian fellowship by promoting healthy and active lifestyles.   Our programs are open to both Chapelwood UMC members and to friends in our community.

COVID-19 Update:  We continue to monitor reports of the virus, and appreciate your understanding of the measures Chapelwood is taking to protect everyone as we all try to figure out the best ways to proceed.  We hope your families are being careful and staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to resuming in-person Recreation programs soon.

When I wear my Sensory Motor Teacher Hat, I challenge children with motor activities that provide experiences that help their bodies develop while sharpening their perception skills and maturing their neurological systems.  Some of the life skills learned in motor class are listening skills, thinking skills, self-control and social growth.

My favorite summer activity

Working at Camp Chapelwood.  As Director this requires me to create and implement programs for elementary age students to learn new skills, develop new interests and develop spiritual awareness.  The best part of this position is that we have a reunion with former students.

My favorite hobbies

Gardening, cooking and reading.

I think children are the happiest when . . .

They are allowed to be active. They learn best when they are doing!

If I could be anyone for a day, I would be . . .

My granddog Bella. She gets to eat, sleep, swim in the lake and play ball all day and have people loving her hourly.

My worst place to be stuck

In a snowstorm in Colorado.  I backed out of a driveway and could not see the dam that was made by a snowplow. I was not even able to open my car door.

My favorite childhood memory

I was an only child so my favorite childhood memories were when I went to friends’ houses and we played board games.

My favorite children’s book

The Little Engine that Could.

The best part of my job

Watching children grow from the seeds planted in preschool, elementary, high school and sometimes college to responsible young adults.
