Volunteer Leader Spotlight: Erin Reece

This week’s Volunteer Leader Spotlight honors Erin Reece.  Erin has an amazing story of how God worked in her life to get her to Winston-Salem, so she could be a part of the team that helped start New Church!  Erin took a HUGE step of faith, and God provided all of her needs and took care of every detail.

Erin works as a nurse for Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, and she volunteers on our Host Team on Sunday mornings.  She also fills in as needed in our Newbies (birth-4 yrs) environment.

I asked Erin 2 simple questions regarding her connection to New Church, and here’s what she had to say:

Why New Church?

Last summer I was finishing up my last semester of school and was praying about what to do when I graduated. God started laying 2 Corinthians 4:18 on my heart, “as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”  The vision of New Church to help people far from God experience new life in Jesus Christ is doing just that. New Church is changing the way people will spend eternity by introducing them to Jesus. So, I am a part of New Church because I wanted to be a part of a church where I could grow in my relationship with Christ as well as serve and help others grow in theirs. 

Why volunteer?

I volunteer because I came to a point in my life where I was no longer content sitting in a chair on Sunday mornings. I see serving as a way to worship, and a way to show my love for God by showing His love to everyone who walks through the doors of our church. 

Thank you for allowing God’s Word to speak to you, and thank you for following him, Erin!  God is pleased by your faith, and I am honored to serve along side of you “…to help people far from God experience new life in Jesus Christ!”
