January 1, 2020 - Children's Ministry News


       There  comes a point in our lives where we stop listening to our desires and  listen to those of the Lord's. For me, that happens in January. It is  with sadness, but excitement, that I will be stepping down as the  children's' ministry coordinator to go to school and to start working  with Northwood Christian Church as the Director of Middle School  Ministries. 

I  have enjoyed this time with all of you and getting to know you as well  as working with the kids. I am sad to leave because I have enjoyed  getting to know everyone, but this will be a new chapter in my life that  will bring about furthered education and the ability to teach more kids  about Jesus and his love. I am thankful for all the support you have  shown me and the kids and I will keep you in my heart and will cherish  the memories made. 

You  are all amazing and God is doing wonderful things in your life right  now, even if you don't see it yet. Thank you again and God Bless.

FCC Children's Ministry!

Welcome to our new Leader who came on board December 1, 2018!

Hello,  my name is Joseph Dyer and I am the new Children's Ministry Leader! 

I  was told by Pastor Steve I should let you know a little about who I am,  so here you go. 

I have lived in Oregon most of my life and enjoy hiking,  working outside, playing music, and working with youth. I have played  music for a majority of my life and a majority of that has been taken over by the Clarinet. My passion for working with youth started at Salem FCC (where I grew up), and there I have held a few positions in  children's ministry, middle and high school, and the sound and audio departments. 

Currently, during the week, I work with the YMCA as the  sports' coordinator and volunteer on Monday nights with Young Life. I am  excited to start this new chapter in my life with Silverton FCC and  can't wait to help these young people grow!
