Pastor Joe thinks it’s a good idea for you to get to know those of us who work as volunteers in the church office. After some thought, I think the best way for that to happen is for you to “spend some time” in activities that typify a week in my life. For a major portion of at least two days a week you’ll find me at Rosalind Hills Baptist Church hard at work on various tasks related to my interests, some of my previous work experiences, projects that tweak my curiosity, and others that to some may seem mundane but are essential to the ministries and mission outreach of the church. At RHBC we tend to capitalize upon the synergy of interests and skills of the individual and needs of the church; thus, my fascination with applications of technology bodes well for such church tasks as layout and production of the weekly church bulletin as well as printed material for special events, preparation of slides for our digital sign, and maintenance of our church web site. On a Wednesday morning you’ll often find me designated as “bag lady,” for I’m packing approximately sixty bags of food to be distributed to food pantry clients on Thursday. Currently, I see myself as a “behind-the-scenes-girl,” an enabler, and a supporter of whatever project is at the forefront or in the works. What keeps me busy when I’m not at RHBC? On at least two days of the week you’ll find me playing tennis–in addition to the exercise, I’m intrigued by the angles and strategy of doubles. I’m an avid walker…with my dog, Ivy, as a partner, we accrue miles on my Fitbit! During spring, summer, and fall I “play in the dirt!” Gardening is a passion. Nothing is finer than spending time among flowering plants and colorful foliage! I travel to explore new places unlike the Roanoke Valley! And, how could I forget books? I can get lost in books, and I love the challenge of crossword puzzles. In a recent devotional I read that God has a purpose for every life that’s created, including mine. And, my job is to discover that intent and live it to the fullest. Here at RHBC, we believe we are “A Place to Belong…A Place to Become” all that God intends for us individually and as a church family. I invite you to call or visit me at RHBC. I’d love to meet you!
