Becky Shanks is the new children’s director for First Baptist Dayton, and leads the newly named One Way Kids Ministry. Becky has been a member of First Baptist Dayton since 1962, and wears many other hats at our church, including Sunday School director and teacher, Vacation Bible School director and church secretary. Her husband Kevin is also active at our church, serving as music director, deacon and trustee. Kevin and Becky have three children and three grandchildren.
Every Wednesday evening from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Becky leads TeamKID, for children in grades 1-5. Have you ever learned a memory verse by flying paper plates into hula hoops? Have you ever played “monkey soccer”? Those are just a couple of examples of the fun things that happen at TeamKID! Come join in on the fun next week at First Baptist Dayton, 501 Dayton Avenue.
First Baptist Dayton is very proud of our youth, who recently returned from a week serving at Smoky Mountain Area Rescue Ministries (SMARM) in Sevierville, Tennessee. They served hot meals, cleaned, sorted donations and much more. The folks at SMARM told them they were the hardest working volunteer group they’ve ever had. Thanks, kids, and congratulations on a terrific job!
We are proud to share church news and events with our readers. Through their various year-round ministries and outreach efforts, the Churches of Dayton are a true blessing to our community.
