Laura HaydenLaura Hayden
Co-Director of Children’s Ministries

Laura joined the FUMC Children’s Ministries staff in 2018. She was born and raised in Ann Arbor and after leaving Ann Arbor – and any sort of faith community – for many years she returned to both in 2012 when she moved back to Ann Arbor with her family. She has enjoyed recommitting to the Ann Arbor community and finding an open, inclusive and loving faith community for her family. She values FUMC as a resource for family service opportunities, a moral education and, as an English major, she believes knowing the stories of the “best selling book in the world” enhances your appreciation of literature, arts, music and, of course, your spirituality. She and her husband, Brian, have three children. She loves to ski, hike, dance (no skill, just joy) and laugh.
