I grew up going to church every Sunday but the Bible nor a personal relationship with Jesus was ever talked about. I quit going to church in College because I saw no need. It wasn't until I had a family of my own that I began to go back to church. I met a dear friend who invited me to a Bible study and from there my eyes where opened to the truth and I finally understood why Jesus died on the cross for me. I heard about the Holy Spirit and Jesus became my Lord and Savior, filling that crazy, empty void I tried to fill with so many other things my whole life.
My first Bible verse I ever memorized was Psalm100. Verse 3 says "Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His." This pretty much sums up my life mission - I was made to know God and to make Him known to others - not just about Him. Also, that I belonged to Him - He had a wonderful purpose for my life. After coming to know the Lord late in life and wasting so many years on trivial things, I want to live my remaining days on this earth on purpose for Gods purposes.
I am blessed to have been involved with several para-church ministries over the years that helped me have a better understanding of "The Body-The Church Universal" and the importance of unity, standing firm on the essentials but showing much grace in the non-essentials. In 2011, when a position at FBC crossed my path, I knew this was Gods next step for me. I am currently serving as the Office Administrator and assistant to the Directional Lead Pastor.
I am married to my husband of 35 years, Tom. We have two sons, Ray and Tim, a daughter-in-law, Heather and two adorable grandsons, Xander and Mason.
My Prayer for Fellowship
To be a church where everyone feels welcomed, loved, connected and encouraged to take that next step on their faith journey. That I would be faithful to my calling to help facilitate an environment where Gods Word is taught in its entirety, so that we have a true understanding of who Jesus is and the depth of His love that radically changes the way we think and live. To lay a firm foundation for the next generation of leaders.
