Lauren Podlas loves serving in the Children's Ministry on Sunday mornings at the Westbury Campus. During the week, Lauren is a third grade teacher but enjoys spending her Sundays with the toddlers. She is counting down the days until June 2017, when she will marry her best friend, Grant White. Lauren likes to spend time with family, watch football, drink an insane amount of coffee and bake yummy desserts. She is passionate about traveling, is a foodie and most of all she loves Jesus. Thank you, Lauren, for bringing your joy of working with kids to the SRC Children’s Ministry!
Andrea Christenson never saw herself as having gifts or talents to serve God with, but after a pastor from her former church challenged her to see that God has given each of us talents that we need to discover, she began teaching Sunday school. Having served for over 12 years now in this ministry, she continues to do this at the Westbury campus by leading the Pre-K class with her daughter, Lauren. She and her husband Todd, and two kids Lauren (14) and Luke (12) have been attending SRC since 2014 after moving back after a 5-year stint in Hong Kong. You may not know that Andrea is a globe trekker and has visited over 50 countries. Thank you Andrea for stepping out and using the gifts God has invested in you to bless our SRC kids!
