At First Baptist, we are committed to following Jesus' example by welcoming children into our church family. During a child's infancy we covenant with parents to be partners with them in nurturing their child and in helping the child grow to know and love Jesus as friend, Savior, and Lord. Our varied programs for children are directed toward that end.

"People were bringing even infants to [Jesus] that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.'" Luke 18:15-16

Susanna joins our staff for the summer, working with our Staff and Children's Ministry Team to coordinate ministry to children and their families through the summer months, while helping to plan for our school year programming. 


Susanna just completed her sophomore year at UNC Chapel Hill where she is a Communication Studies major with a minor in Music. Susanna was an active part of the First Baptist youth choir and youth group in high school and her family remains active in our youth ministry. In addition to her background with our church and community, last summer Susanna worked as a Children's Ministry Intern at First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. 


I am very excited for the opportunity to join First Baptist Church this summer as the Summer Children's Coordinator. I look forward to building  on the strong foundation already established and contributing fresh ideas for the Children's Ministry. I hope to use this summer to discern a possible future in ministry and know that this church will assist me along my journey. First Baptist Church holds a special place in my heart and I am so honored that I can give back to such a caring and supportive congregation. Thank you, Susanna Trotter.


We welcome Susanna and look forward to the summer ahead. 


NOTE: With summer leadership established, we are considering plans for interim leadership of our Children's Ministry during the school year. More information and discussion will be shared later this summer, but any questions can be directed to Alan Tutterow, Personnel Chair, or Alan Sherouse, Pastor.
