August 2022

Big Top Kids Families!

It may be August already, but there is still plenty of summer left! We have one more month of Summer Palooza events, including our Back to School Carnival! Homestead is giving out over 300 backpacks filled with school supplies. This is one of our favorite events of the year! We are still looking for volunteers to help. If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up here.


Enjoy the rest of your summer!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Big Top Kids Intern - Kelly O'Connor

We are SO excited to announce that Kelly has begun an internship at Homestead in Big Top Kids! Here is a message from Kelly:


Hi! My name is Kelly O'Connor. I have been married for 14 years to my husband, Patrick. We have three children: Logan (12), Bennett (9), Finley (6), and our puppy, Sunny Cinnamon. We have lived in Farmington for the last nine years. My husband is originally from Farmington, and I am from Lakeville. We have been attending Homestead Community Church since fall of 2021.


I have always been a people person with a passion for finding the fun! I have been serving in kids ministry for over 10 years. In 2018, at Lake Geneva kids camp, I felt a strong calling to take my involvement in kids ministry to the next level. The timing for me was not right, so I started serving as much as possible. Fast forward to now...I am excited to announce I will be starting school this fall to officially become a credentialed kid's pastor!! It has been so much fun and such an honor being part of the family of Homestead and the Big Top Kids team. My mission is for every child to know they are here on purpose, for a purpose. Above all else, I want kids to know the love of Jesus and have their own, personal relationship with him!!
