The friendly face welcoming you to Hampton UMC is Bonnie Cook, our church administrator. Should you need to reserve or request use of our facilities, Bonnie is who you need to call, and she will be happy to help you with anything you need!

Sheri Hand

Preschool Director

Sheri has been our Preschool director since 2017. She loves being able to work with the church congregation, staff, children and their families. She and her staff know that the nurturing of these little minds is so important. They all strive to instill the love of God in each small heart. Our saying at the preschool is "You're not just part of the preschool, you're part of our family." 

April Martinez

April is one of the most hard working of our staff members with her wonderful family pitching in to keep our church facilities first rate. In addition to cleaning, April also helps with both the preschool and children's ministry and whatever else needs care in the church.

Sherrie Selman

Ms. Sherrie wears a lot of hats at Hampton UMC, and we love her so much! In addition to coordinating our nursery, Sherrie works with the preschool assisting teachers and makes sure facilities are in order.
