Children's Ministries, Kathleen Rockmore
I am Kathleen Rockmore and I grew up a Methodist in rural Pennsylvania. I have a degree in PsychoBiology with a minor in Child Development. In 2004, I moved to California with my future husband where I began a career in office administration. John and I were married in 2010 and God blessed us with a son, Tristan, the following year. Evidently God also wanted to bless us with a zoo so He added 3 rescue cats, a special needs Turtle and countless fish to our home. I also currently work as the bookkeeper for both BHUMC and Meals on Wheels of Long Beach.
After joining BHUMC in 2013 and extensively volunteering in the Sunday School program, I am now excited and privileged to serve the Lord and BHUMC in coordinating the Children’s Ministry program. God has certainly equipped me for this ministry with invaluable knowledge such as knuckle bumps are a much healthier alternative to high fives (thanks to those early years, I now have the immune system of a robot), I no longer have a sense of embarrassment, Pinterest level = expert, I can use random junk as props, I know 1000 activities centered around a toilet paper roll, and I manage my days through prayer and lots of coffee.
I am thankful to have such a wonderful village of parents, teachers, and assistants as part of the Children’s Ministry team and together, we welcome all children to come and experience the love of our Lord.
