Hello new friends! We’re the McColgins! Scott, Angela, Piper (8…almost 9) and Lydia (4…almost 5). (We celebrate two birthdays next week!). We’re a big table family. There is always room for one more around our table to eat a meal, share a conversation, or play a board game! The pandemic brought us to home-schooling and we loved it so much we decided to stay.
Scott is the Director of Video Production at our church. He tells amazing stories through video about what God is doing in our church family both here and around the world. He also oversees the live video team that is a part of our Sunday morning worship. When he’s not behind the camera you might find him playing something from his large collection of board games, watching a movie, or riding his bike. Scott loves a good campfire and has grown to appreciate the joys of hammock camping.
Angela loves to host people for meals and cooking for others is her love language. She hasn’t yet found a recipe she isn’t willing to tackle and you can often find her in the kitchen baking, cooking, canning, or reading a cookbook for inspiration. Angela completed her zoology degree from Ball State University (where she and Scott met and fell in love) and spent seven years working for the Indianapolis Zoo before becoming a full time SAHM. During her career with the zoo she took animals to schools for educational programs, wrote educational graphics for animal exhibits throughout the zoo, met conservationists from around the globe and got up close with some spectacular animals. She still loves to spend time outdoors marveling at all God has made for us to enjoy.
Piper, starting 4th grade this year, is a lover of sports, baking, writing books, art projects and her new hoverboard. She and Scott play a lot of board games together. Her current favorites are Marvel United and Wingspan. Piper is always willing to try something new, a lover of people and quick to laugh! Currently, she thinks she wants to be a fashion designer, but President of the United States or sea lion trainer are also future career options.
Lydia, starting Kindergarten this year, is our funny girl. She’s learning to tell jokes and we are rarely in the car for more than five minutes before she’s saying “knock-knock” from the back seat. Lydia’s favorite food is chocolate and she thinks candy is one of the major food groups. She learned to ride a bike this year and she’s quick to make friends. She loves animals and takes great pride in caring for her betta fish Olaf.
Finding a community of people to do home school with is an answer to prayer and we are excited to see what God will do through the Beloved Community!
