WALSENBURG — Mahaliah Hilts has been appointed by the congregation of New Hope Community Church as a part-time ministry assistant for children’s programs.
Hilts is a junior high school social studies teacher with La Veta schools. She is a graduate of Doane University in Nebraska, with notable achievements as a scholar, musician, and athlete.
In addition to her education degree and teaching experience, she has worked with younger children in a variety of Christian organizations. “There is a simplicity and wonder that kids experience with the Lord that is so refreshing. The Lord has gifted me with the ability to connect to children, due to my ability to be silly and make things fun” said Hilts.
“We are very excited about reaching out to children and families,” said Pastor Joel Shults. “Our Easter kick-off with a special kid-friendly service is a new beginning and we are hoping to see lots of families.” The church is located at 801 Pennsylvania in Walsenburg.
