Volunteer Leader Spotlight: Jessica Sizemore

The Volunteer Leader Spotlight for this week is focused on Jessica Sizemore.  Jessica is married to Josh, and she became a mom when she gave birth to her son, James, just 2 months ago.  She is the main storyteller for the pre-schoolers in our Newbies (birth-4 yrs.) environment.

I asked Jessica 2 simple questions related to her experience with New Church, and below is what she had to say:

Why New Church?

New Church came into my life at a time when I needed it.  Josh and I had been attending another area church off and on for several years, but for whatever reason, we just couldn’t seem to get plugged in.  New Church allows me to be a part of something real and comfortable.  I really love that New Church gets rid of the fluff that some churches add.  If it is not in the Bible, then it isn’t taught–period.  It is real and authentic and exactly what I was searching for.  Being a New Church Partner has helped me understand the importance of the Great Commission. It is our job to spread the good news of Jesus, and New Church offers a concrete way to do that.

Why Volunteer?

I volunteer because I love the pure joy that I see on the faces of the kids in Newbies when they are worshiping God.  Jesus said that we need to have childlike faith and to see that played out on their little faces every Sunday brings it home for me.  I not only get to teach children all about the character of God, but I get to watch them discover who He is and understand how that works in their lives and the lives of their parents.  Serving in Newbies is fun, and I look forward to each week because I know I am helping lay a solid foundation for these children to grow into adults who will know the God of the universe intimately.  This is the most crucial time to lay that foundation, and I consider myself blessed to be a part of it.

And we are blessed to have Jessica serving as a Volunteer Leader in our Next Generation Ministry!  Thank you for all you do, Jessica!
