Connect Kids S.A.F.E. Policies and Procedures

Justin and Jessica Anderson

Ministry Team Leaders

Justin and I have been married since June of 2011. We are the proud parents of three beautiful children. Alicia, Elijah, and Jacqueline. We are an athletic family. We love baseball, football, and basketball. We also love hiking, biking and swimming. Our vision for Kids' Ministry is to help our Connect kids to not only have a personal relationship with God, but to hear His voice for themselves. The heart of this ministry is for our kids to find how much God loves them and who He says they are. "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." James 1:5

Jungle Cafe

My name is Emma Potratz and I am so excited for the opportunity to serve in Jungle Cafe. I have been working with kids for almost my entire life and I've loved every minute of it! Children never cease to amaze me! They bring so much joy and light to the lives around them...and they are such smart cookies! It is my great privilege to work with your kids and I am excited to teach them about the love and goodness of our Jesus!

Alpine Lodge

I was born right here in Bozeman, Montana and am proud to call the Gallatin Valley home. I have a daughter, Vivian, who is my greatest accomplishment in life. I started to teach her American Sign Language when she was around 3 months old. She signed back for the first time when she was 9 months old and my heart soared! I have enjoyed being part of every learning moment she has experienced since. I am attending Montana State University pursuing a degree in Elementary Education. I enjoy it so much! It is such a pleasure to get to watch the children in Alpine Lodge grow and learn! I'm grateful to be the Lead Teacher and I strive to help our Connect Church kids learn about Jesus and have fun getting to know the stories of the Bible each week. Thank you for sharing your awesome kiddos with me! God bless!

Pet Shop

Hi! I'm Becca, the lead teacher for Pet Shop. I am a Senior in the Accounting program at Montana State University. I started coming to Connect Church with my family more than four years ago. Having grown up in a daycare home, my love for kids started at a very young age. I have been babysitting and nannying for 11 years and working in church nurseries just as long. I'm happy to get to love on our littlest Connectors!
