SPL Kids in the News – December


SPL Kids Team Members: Dale and Coley Adloff
Doug and Coley Adloff are the parents of Grace (7) and William (2). They joined the church in the spring of 2016 and the SPL Kids Team around the same time. Doug acts as a doorperson during Saturday evening worship and F3 and helps at the check-in station when needed. He enjoys working with both the preK-K and 1st-4th graders as they develop their unique, personal relationship with Jesus. Coley helps as both a doorperson and storyteller during Saturday evening worship and F3 for the pre-k class. She enjoys sharing the stories of the Bible through Godly Play and watching the children grow and develop a deeper faith. Doug is a farmer in the Clinton area, and Coley stays at home with the kids. As a family, they enjoy traveling, snowmobiling, snow skiing, and most outdoor activities.

“The pace of life is fast, and time to stop, or at least to slow down, is considered to be a commodity that cannot be afforded. Parents, where possible, try not to always be in a hurry. Slow the pace of life down a little, and allow your children time to play, to observe the tiny insects on the footpath, or the fog on a winter’s day, or the leaves falling in autumn, and allow children simply the time to be.”
-Brendan Hyde, Children and Spirituality: Searching for Meaning & Connectedness
