Did you know we have some amazing volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes helping to create the fertile ground from which hearts and minds and souls burst out with new life? Because of their time, attention and sacrificial work, others learn, others engage and others receive the benefit.
Meet Hila Cartwright, Diane Galloway and Misty Standifer. These ladies are the drive and production behind our First Wednesday Meals. Having experienced the joy of fellowship and food at a table with fellow church members in the past, Hila was hungry (pun intended) to see our church offer this connection point again. Through her passion, determination and encouragement, church leadership heard the call and pressed forward with her.
Because of special ministry investment dollars (beyond the budget), we are able to offer these meals at a discounted cost to keep it affordable for all and to keep the focus on the meal and fellowship. Diane and Misty have been amazing helpers, rallying behind Hila to see this ministry succeed. Those who have experienced it, know what a wonderful time this is to visit and just relax with a meal you didn’t have to prepare. : ) If you see these ladies, please give them some encouragement and show your appreciation for their leadership around this ministry.
Hila, Diane and Misty, Thank you for all you do – from the many unseen things to the bold and obvious. Thank you for being an example to many of what it’s like to offer what you can when you can and to live into the life of this church for the sake of others, for the sake of Christ. We acknowledge you and greatly appreciate you! YOU are making a difference!
With love, Your Church
