Turning Sundays Upside Down for Children

Dear Holy Innocents Family:
I am happy to announce that one of our own, Melissa Liipfert, has accepted the call to serve as Interim Children’s Director.  Melissa, along with her husband Jeff and their children, are active members of Holy Innocents.  She grew up in the Diocese of Atlanta, was active in EYC and diocesan youth programming, including Camp Mikell, and has worked in marketing most of her career.  Melissa will begin serving August 1 and is excited to help us step forward in our program.

I am also thankful to announce the good and visionary work of our Children’s Committee, appointed just a few weeks ago.  They are helping us “take the school out of Sunday School, making our program fun, meaningful, and spiritual for children and families.”  The Committee guided the process toward calling Melissa as an interim and will continue to meet and support our work in this important area until a position description is available for the permanent director.  We hope to search this fall and have a permanent director in place no later than January 1, 2017.

Please join me in welcoming Melissa to this new chapter for children in Your Place for Faith and look for her upcoming announcements for a great fall program.
Grace and peace,
