Get to know our DR West Deacon of Children’s Ministries, Emily Hurlbut
Attending Damascus Road for: Almost ten years
Areas of involvement at DR: As children’s deacon, I keep the nursery and children's classrooms supplies stocked, schedule volunteers, oversee the check-in system, and keep the curriculum in the classroom up-to-date. I also serve in the nursery as a teacher on a monthly basis. I also volunteer on the set-up and greeting teams.
Family life & Hobbies: I enjoy reading books and shopping at the Dig 'n Save but have not found much time do so in recent years due to being a stay at home mommy to Arianna (age 4 1/2) and Elsa (2 1/2). My husband Bret and I are expecting Little Sibling to arrive at the end of June/beginning of July as well.
Vision for DR: I would love to see Damascus Road continue to look for ways to reach out into the community and also continue to grow as a church family through community groups. In children's, I would like to create a better partnership between the parents and the classroom volunteers so that parents can integrate/reinforce what their children are learning in the classroom into family devotional time or Bible instruction.
