2017 Marie Fletcher Award Recipients-- Donna Varnado
2017 Marie Fletcher Award A member of our church remembers these words and this thought from going to Sunday school as a child, “Jesus went about doing good….”
Our Marie Fletcher Award recipient carries the light of Christ in her heart every day. You can see it in her eyes and in her smile as she greets you and as she goes about her daily activities. Always loving, always enthusiastically participating in the life of our church, she exemplifies Christian principles in all that she does.
Our recipient has taught Sunday school here for five years. She lovingly trains and guides our children and young people as acolytes at both worship services every Sunday. She prepares and distributes activity bags to the children at both services as well.
She is a member of the Mission Team and United Methodist Women, and she is the co-chair of the Care Team. She serves as liturgist and greeter as needed in both worship services. At every congregational dinner, you can find her setting up, serving and cleaning up! She has filled in as a nursery worker, helps with Little School as needed and helps children through the “High-Five” after school enrichment/tutoring program.
She has participated in the Reaching New People program, Disciple Bible Study and other women’s Bible Studies. She started our annual Christmas giveaway as well as our Christmas Day dinner.
Our recipient lovingly supports her husband in every way possible. She is certainly a wonderful example of a Godly Woman that all women can aspire to become.
The question is not where can she be found but rather where can she not be found!!! In essence, she is present physically, spiritually and emotionally with us and with all others as she goes about doing the work of our Lord through all of these activities and even more!
It is with deep admiration and sincere gratitude that we present the 2017 Marie Fletcher Award to Donna Varnado, a child of God who goes about doing good! e.
