| I’d like to introduce you to Unity’s new Children’s Director: Bailey Beam! After months of hard work, the Children & Youth Team decided that Bailey would be the perfect addition to our staff. I am thrilled to have her leading our children’s programs. She is enthusiastic and has an obvious passion for the faith development of our children.
Monday was Bailey’s first day at Unity. We will introduce her at both services on Sunday. If you see her around the church or office, please say “hi!”
Here is a note from Bailey:
“Hi! I’m Bailey, and I am the new Director of Children’s Ministry. I grew up on a small farm in Lincolnton, and I currently still live there with my parents, Scott and Sherri. I have a dog named Dooley, and a donkey named Snowball! I graduated from Lincolnton High School in 2015, and then from Lenoir Rhyne University in 2019. At LR I double majored in Vocal Performance and Sacred Music. During my time there I was crowned Homecoming Queen, and I was in a variety of clubs including the A Cappella choir, Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority, and the Dance Team. I am so blessed and excited to be a part of this community, and I can’t wait to get to know everyone!”
Unity is experiencing tremendous growth in its children’s areas. This church has made a commitment to providing the staffing and resources needed to share the gospel with the next generation. I am very thankful for this church and its passion for young children and their families.
Bailey will begin calling Unity’s families who have kids from birth to 5th grade. She will be setting up “Get To Know You” playdates at the CYC over the next couple of weeks. She will also begin preparing for our fall programming and activities.
A special thank you to our Children’s Director Hiring Team: Ashley Hartsoe, Kara Lukehart, Lindsay Schoff, Sarah Bonnema, Tripp Viverette and Deanna Walker! This team worked extremely hard and I am very thankful for their dedication.
See you on Sunday!
