We’d like to thank Bruce and Mike for their kind words and for our gifts. (I, Marsha, am pretty stoked about my pink umbrella. I recently lost my old umbrella, so this is the perfect gift. And I, Sue, am thrilled with my chocolate bars because, well, I’m always thrilled by chocolate.)
During this time of transition as we head into retirement, we look back on our years of being on staff at RBC and find that we have much to be thankful for.
First, we are thankful that God put us together. Our personalities and gifting are quite different and some people thought we wouldn’t work well together. But God knew that we would balance one another, be stronger together and become great friends.
Second, we are thankful for the staff at RBC. They have supported us in so many ways. They are truly a team that works together and wants everyone to succeed. We’ve been able to see up close their love for people, their strong faith, and their servant hearts.
Third, we are thankful for the many volunteers who make Women’s Ministry run smoothly. These women have given of their time and talents faithfully, in joyful service, and we couldn’t have done it without them.
Last, but not least, we are thankful for each woman who has participated in Women’s Ministry. We have been privileged to see women grow in their faith, find community and serve one another.
We are grateful for all the experiences over these past years. Whether they’ve brought us joy and laughter or challenge and growth, God has used each of them in our lives. Now as we step down, we look forward. We are excited to see what God has planned next for the women of RBC.
Marsha and Sue
