Bethany Swinerd
Sunday School
Hi, my name is Bethany, I’m so excited to join the Cambridge Street United Church family. As an adult I find I am a goofy and fun loving individual, I love my dogs and being outside and in hot weather.

I grew up in  the church, spending lots of time in Sunday school and being a youth leader. I’ve worked up in wemindji, Northern Quebec setting up day camps and doing g musical programs in schools, and traveled to Texas with global expeditions.

I went to school in my late twenties searching for something I was passionate about. I found community service work and haven’t looked back, After a while  working in group homes and shelters  for some time, I felt  called to move on in life, I wound up working with the first thing I ever found joy in doing, working with children. I believe the Lord has put a desire in my heart to work with the children and youth of the world, That my experiences in life are meant to be passed on as learning lessons and to Provide a safe place For his children. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you.
