Sandra C came to Old First as a volunteer in 2010. She started by sorting clothes on Friday afternoons. Now she’s become a regular volunteer at the Saturday morning food and clothing cupboard.
She wasn’t raised in the church, but has come to faith in her adulthood and mostly on her own. She sometimes worships with her husband who is Roman Catholic. But, having been through many life challenges, she’s found Old First both a supportive and non-judgmental community that has become integral part in her life’s journey. She wants to commit her life to Christ.
Michael counseled her that joining the church, she is also promising to open herself to the ways the faith community can offer help for her faith walk. She doesn’t have to go life’s journey alone. It’s not even just her and God on the path. She’s now covenanting to walk with us all.
As she has found strength in her faith journey so far, let us pray that being baptized on Sunday, she will find the help to become even stronger in her faith. Welcome Sandra into the family of faith!
