Children’s Ministry, where every child is valued! 

The Children’s Ministry at Paradise Evangelical Free Church exists to partner with families in laying a Biblical foundation for every child, from birth through grade 6.

We long to introduce children to Jesus in a safe and fun environment, helping them learn Scripture and grow in their faith while making friends and having fun.

We care about the safety of your children. All of our Children’s Ministry workers have been interviewed and background checked prior to serving with your children.

My Story

Born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula then in 1976 moved to Northern California. My first work with children was at summer camp for the Camp Fire Girls in 1974. In 1977, I had a chance to work at an elementary school as an instructional aide. Starting in the late 70s, I did not work outside my home; the care for my two children, Josh and Sarah was primary in my life. In 1987, my attendance at Shasta College earned me an AA degree in General Education.

​I have always had a heart for teaching children about our Lord. In 1996 I started teaching in Children’s Ministry and in 1999 became an assistant to a Children’s Ministry Pastor.

​Currently, we are teaching from Answers Bible Curriculum which is a 200-lesson curriculum that covers the entire Bible in chronological fashion. It confirms the accuracy of the Bible, goes into historical background, and also includes practical life application. It solidifies the many Bible stories children hear. It is exciting to impart the truths of God's written word, the Bible, to the next generation.

VBS is a vital part of children's ministries.  Every summer we focus on teaching children in a great learning environment with Bible teaching, competitive games, and crafts.  Look at the attached video to see how much fun we have during VBS Week.
