  • Cindy hay

    Children's Director

    Cindy has been ministering to children and families in some capacity since graduating from Southern Arkansas University. She has worked as a special needs and preschool teacher as well as a medical social worker. Prior to becoming children's director, Cindy served through VBS, mission programs, children's choir, and Sunday school. Cindy believes that children are our responsibility whether they are in our home, our community, or thousands of miles away. Children’s ministry is more than teaching Bible stories and passing out animal crackers. It is teaching kids to have a relationship with God Monday through Saturday, not just an encounter on Sunday. Cindy and her husband Larry have been married since 1986. They have three boys: Brandon, Nathan and Noah. Her favorite scripture is Zepheniah 3:17.
