Meet our First Kids Director
Hi, I'm Ginger Moore, AKA sports director, entertainer, fire patrol and music enthusiast.
I joined the First UMC team in 2005 as the First Kids Director. I am also a 5th grade teacher at Marion Primary School. My favorite part of the First Kids ministry is the kids! My dream for this ministry, among many other things, is to have a large children's choir that performs for our community like when I was a little girl.
Favorite verse: Mark 12:31
