ACE Ministry
Career Talks with ACE
“As a kid growing up many years ago, I had little notion of the careers I might pursue. I grew up on a farm...and had little knowledge of other careers until later in life.” We want to educate students about what people do in their jobs. So, as part of the ACE summer program, we ask people to take ~30 minutes, come by the church, and talk with students about what you do professionally. More

Heather Beck joined our nutrition team, assisting Chef Dwayne in the kitchen. Ms. Heather has managerial experience in the deli/bakery and recently taught children's cooking classes at Flour Power. We hope to incorporate cooking with kids activities to our curriculum, once restrictions calm down. Cooking offers great hands-on science and math learning experiences for kiddos!
