Meet Our Youth Director

Kelley Sonnen is from Castroville, Texas, a quaint, historic community about a half-hour drive from downtown San Antonio.

As of Sunday, March 15, 2015 Kelley is the new Director of Youth Ministries.Kelley attended Lon Morris Junior College for two years on a Bishops scholarship and then attended Concordia University Texas for a year before moving back home and serving at her home church, Medina Valley UMC, as the youth director for almost three years. Kelley grew that program from four kids to almost 15. She is now attending Our Lady of the Lake University and hoping to finish her religion degree soon.

Kelley has caught the travel bug and always is looking for the next adventure. Not surprisingly, Kelley also has a heart for missions. She is very close with her family and they are an active part of her ministry. Included in her family are her two dogs Zoe and Lulu. Kelley’s hope is to teach as many teenagers about God’s love and sacrifice as possible.

Hello Laurel Heights High school seniors and parents of seniors!
Senior Sunday will be May 21st. They are asked to be at both services to be presented bibles as well as being seen in front of the congregation. They are also asked to help read during both services. I will be putting all of that together. Please let me know if your senior will be there so I know who to count on. Following the 11:00 service will be a lunch for friends and family.
Scholarship information: There are two scholarships they can apply for. The Mary Blackford scholarship deadline is April 1st and the Church scholarship deadline April 15th. Call Elizabeth at the church office (210-733-7156) for applications.
Picutres for senior Sunday. I need 10 pictures of your senior from birth-now. I can make copies of the pictures or if you have them on a flash drive or can email me them that would be great as well. These will be put into a slideshow for the lunch May 21st. Please also let me know what College your senior will be attending.
We are excited to celebrate this special time with you and your family.
