My name is Melissa(Missy) and I am the Children’s Ministry Directorr. I have been attending Creekside Church since I was eight years old. I was baptized with this church and have been trying to live out the purpose God has set for me. I really enjoy spending my time teaching children and not only teach in children’s church but am also a teacher full time. Showing gentle love and guidance is important to growing children not only in there learning but also being a support in guiding children in their walk with Christ. I look forward to meeting you and your children.
