Week's Scripture Promise
We welcome Sarah Norris!
Shartel has been my home from a young age; my family started regularly attending in my early elementary school years, and I can honestly say that many of my fondest memories are with the people here. I’ve observed how changes and transitions impact the ministry in a variety of ways, and now I have the privilege of directly being a part of one—and I feel confident that it will be a great one.
I am 23 and a recent graduate of Mid-America Christian University with a degree in Specialized Ministries and Pastoral Care. You can often find me working away with music playing in the background, and if you’re lucky, you might catch me jamming out in my little Sonata to Disney, musicals, or virtually anything with a half-decent beat. I’m also a big fan of chocolate (like, the biggest), banana nut bread, and quiet mornings with plenty of green tea. Music in general has always been a star player throughout my life from choirs to school and church musicals to leading worship for children, youth, and young adults. I like to say I was born with music in my soul, and I believe it has been tremendously formative in my pursuit to live a life of worship in every aspect.
While I’ve been on staff for a little over a year and a half now, I’m so looking forward to continuing serving alongside each of our current volunteers as well as those to come. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to having this opportunity to pour into the ministry here that is so dear to my heart and my story, and I’m overflowing with joy as we all prepare to step into growth and fellowship with one another in this new season.
All my love and blessings to you,
