The three women we see and read about at this time of year when we celebrate Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem are Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna, the prophetess. Volunteer appreciation is an integral part of what we do at Eastwood Tulsa and we want to take a moment to recognize the women who work with our babies on any and all Sundays. There are two women in the nursery every Sunday during the Sunday School hour, singing, playing music, rocking babies and changing diapers.
Lyn Spencer has been in the baby nursery (six weeks through 20 months) for many years. She is always cheerful, smiling and ready to put one or two babies in her lap or get on the floor with them.
Paula Willoughby, who is Lyn’s friend, stepped in to help her in the nursery without being asked when another teacher became very ill. She always arrives early, making name tags and preparing the room for the arrival of our babies.
There are many more women and men doing the same things during our church services throughout the month.
Please say “thank you” to these ladies and men when you see them in our church: Sandy Daniels, Kim Estes, Sheryl Hawkins, Barbara Vansickle, Eilene Cook, Tabby Davis, Vicki Shannon, David Shannon, Robin Phelps, Damon Phelps, and Steva Cottingim.
We appreciate their faithfulness and loyalty to the position they have volunteered to do once a month.
Enjoy your family this Christmas Season.
