The children’s programs are overseen by our Director of Children and Family Ministries, Becky Stambaugh, who has been serving at First Church since January 2015.  Becky came to us after serving six and a half years as the Children’s Ministry Coordinator at Hollywood United Methodist Church in Hollywood, CA.  Both she and her husband (also in the ministry) were raised in New Jersey where they met doing church work together.  In addition to serving the children in Guilford, Becky’s ministry experience also includes time as a high school youth group leader at her home church in NJ, as well as being a summer teen camp counselor at Camp Berea in New Hampshire.  Before working in the ministry, she taught middle and high school English and Drama for 9 years in the NJ public school system, where she also produced and directed high school and community theatre for over 15 years.  Becky holds a Bachelors degree in English Education, and a Masters Degree in Christian Counseling.
