Mary Hardegen

Early Childhood Director

Mary has been on the Children’s Ministry staff for many years and has a passion for helping young children and families grow in relationship with our Lord. Overseeing the weekend programs for kids ages birth – Kindergarten by providing curriculum, building volunteer teams, and keeping kids safe has brought her great joy. The greatest reward for her is watching teens who once attended the rooms as preschoolers now learning to lead as volunteers in those same rooms. She works with Adam Batt, Victoria Willis, April Keyser, and Stephanie Baumler, as well as a large team of volunteers, to provide enriching environments for kids on all of our campuses for weekend services.

 

Mary recently became a Parenting Coach with the National Center for Biblical Parenting and hopes to bring those resources to families in any way God leads.

 

When she is not busy with family and her two grandsons, she enjoys hiking and doing outdoor activities, painting watercolors, and growing spiritually with her many sisters in the Lord.  Favorite vacation spot: Ogunquit, Maine. Favorite Bible verse: John 17:3 “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”
