Emily Birr
Children’s Ministry Coordinator


I'm the new Children’s Ministry Coordinator at Creekside Church. I’ll be working with kids sixth grade and younger in worship and Sunday School, and special planning events for kids and parents.

I’ve had a long history in the Church of the Brethren from growing up at Crest Manor Church in South Bend, and being at Camp Alexander Mack during the past twenty years as a camper, CIT, counselor, volunteer, summer staff and year-round staff employee. I’ve been to National Youth Conference and on the Bridgewater College Inter District Youth Conference planning roundtable. I’ve felt a strong connection to the Church of the Brethren from a young age, and have been drawn to the church my entire life.

I’m working in elder care right now; I’m thrilled to be working with kiddos again -- it’s been a real missing piece in my life. I have a passion for integrating educational components with spiritual and emotional development; working with children at Creekside is a way to do that with grace and ease.

Here’s some information about me: I have an awesome nephew, three dogs, and a supportive partner. Chris and I met at Camp Mack, so you’ll probably see him around at Creekside. He loves doing outreach with children as well!
