Director of Children's Ministries
A Note from Maria:
The Lord has given me a strong passion and a burden to teach children God’s truths. My belief from 2 Timothy 3:15 is that you teach children from infancy and continue to build into them as they grow. I enjoy creating fun environments where children learn to love Jesus through creativity, making friends and through worshipping our God. It is quite a responsibility to teach children to “… set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments,” Psalm 78:7, but I am up to the challenge and committed to our families at Riverlakes to be their support as they lead their child’s spiritual journey.
When I’m not in ministry, I am with my wonderful husband, Michael. Together we love spending time riding bikes, going to the beach and just plain hanging out with our children and our grandchildren.
