Chris thinks preschoolers are amazing and loves how they embrace learning and enjoy various activities.  She believes that laying a foundation of faith at this age is important!  Concepts of “God made me”, “God loves me” and “Jesus wants to be my friend forever” are the basis of that foundation.  Chris loves serving her volunteers because they work hard with the children and families.  They are a dedicated and faithful group.
