Church family and friends, I trust that many of you have already heard about the wonderful employment opportunity that our Office Manager, Melody Marquez, has accepted. Although we rejoice with her, we are a bit saddened that it means she will be leaving her position here at The Woods, effective Thursday, June 21, 2018.
A cake and punch reception will be held in Melody’s honor this Sunday, June 17, 2018, in the Commons area immediately following the 8:30 a.m. worship service and before the 11:00 a.m. worship service commences. The Staff Pastor-Parish Committee will host the reception and invite you to show your love and appreciation for Melody’s faithful service by showering her with cards and gifts and other expressions of thanks. (Hugs and words of encouragement are also in order.)
In addition to serving as Office Manager since 2013, Melody has also held the position of Children’s Director at the church. It would be an understatement to say what a blessing she has been to The Woods church, its ministries, people, community and to me during my time here. For this, we are grateful. As one who possesses a beautiful heart of servanthood, she will truly be missed.
May we join in prayer as she begins her new journey; and may we continue to seek God’s grace for The Woods UMC in its season of transition. We remain a people of hope and faith because our God is good and continues to reign supreme.
