Other: Envision and develop other opportunities to lead our children into a deeper experience of the delight God takes in them and the delight they can take in being part of our church family and the larger community. This will include leading children’s outreach opportunities as well as activities at regular parish events such as Algonkian Park Picnic, Oktoberfest, St. Matthew’s Day, Easter Sunday Egg Hunts, and Christmas Sing-Along. It will also include creative, new events driven by the vision and enthusiasm of you and your team.
