This week I want to take this space to say “thank you” to one of our valuable staff members who is celebrating 25 years of service to our church this month. Patsy Morales serves as our Special Ministries Assistant. In that capacity Patsy wears a multitude of hats. Some of the things she does include the preparation of the weekly e-newsletter and the print newsletter that some still receive. She also puts all my daily devotionals in emails to more than 1,200 people every day. Patsy works with our Music Ministry to prepare music for rehearsals and performances. She does the “Sunday screens” which show the scripture I am using and various other points during the sermons. She also coordinates our video camera security system which covers our campus.
The above list is just a fraction of what Patsy does in her role as a part of our ministry team. Above all, Patsy loves her Lord and this church. She expresses that through her faithfulness in worship and discipleship whenever she can. Every day Patsy shows the love of Christ to all who enter the office area. She has a warm smile and a friendly greeting for all.
Twenty-five years is a long time to remain in one job these days. I am grateful that Patsy has not only been in her job for a quarter of a century, but that she has continued to grow in her job and in grace and awareness of our Lord. Be sure to drop Patsy a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to thank her for great work. Thanks, Patsy, for a job very well-done!
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we gather again in the light of the resurrection!
