Dear RPC Family,
Yesterday, in our worship services, we gathered together to celebrate the great heritage we share at Roswell Presbyterian Church. Since 1839, God has been faithful in sustaining and guiding us in the ministry of Jesus Christ. One of the key people in making that ministry possible has been Nancy Turner, RPC's second-longest serving employee. After 33 years of service, Nancy has announced that she will retire from her position as Senior Director of Administration at the end of this year.
Over the past year, I have personally benefited from Nancy's expertise in church administration, as she has helped me get up to speed with the immense number of things that go on behind the scenes at RPC. I have been privileged to watch her accomplish her many responsibilities. She administers the church budget, manages the church's facilities and operations, has helped organize several capital campaign and building projects, and has led and participated in mission trips to Kenya, Guatemala, and the Yucatán.
Nancy's ministry extends far beyond her job responsibilities, as she has supported staff and church members going through illness and sadness, hosted the families of children awaiting emergency surgery and traveled many times to El Salvador through Childspring International, and has been a source of strength and stability during times of change. Through her steadfast work ethic and deep commitment to Christ, Nancy has helped RPC be known for its hospitality, service to the local and global community, and witness for Jesus Christ.
Just as RPC was Nancy's church home before she came on staff, so too, RPC will continue to be her church home after her retirement. She, and her husband, Edward, when not traveling, will continue to be active and vital members of the Roswell Presbyterian Church family. As you see her around, please join me in thanking her for her faithful service!
On Sunday, January 28, 2018, after the 11:15 a.m. worship service, we will gather in Alderman Hall to celebrate Nancy's ministry. Please be on the lookout for more details regarding this celebration in the coming days.
