It’s been almost a year since my hubby and I moved from our church in Indiana to Harvester Christian Church here in Missouri (See some pictures of my hubby and I and read about how we met, click here)! It’s hard to believe that it’s been just about a year since we moved here – it seems like we have known our Middle Schoolers for way longer, been apart of this church for forever and known many of the staff members and leaders for years. I suppose when you’re apart of such an incredible and welcoming church, it’s easy to feel that way! We wanted to get the Student Ministry Team together for a fun Apple Orchard Fall Session – it was so great (despite ending the night with being yelled at by a grumpy older man, haha!)
We so love the Student Ministry staff that Matt works with everyday. It’s been such a blessing getting to know each of their families.
Marcia, (her family is first in this blog!) is the Administrative Assistant and is just plain great! Her family is the absolute sweetest – they even have a little girl on the way, coming this Winter! Mark and Marcia are super down to Earth and really easy to be around. Their boys are wild and hilarious, and currently wishing that their new little sister was going to be a boy! (Marica was really hoping to have a girl, so we are SO excited for them!)
Nick, (the second family in this blog!) is the High School Pastor and the most laid back person there ever was. He and Blaire have the cutest family! Their little ones are bundles of joy and sassiness – they love to talk Matt’s ear off (especially their youngest, Bristol!). Blaire is so sweet and super thoughtful – she has always been so intentional about getting together and messaging one another which has been such a blessing! Being able to partner together and just simply have that kind of relationship together as been incredible.
Last but not least, there’s Sam – the Student Worship Director! He and his wife Meg just recently got married in August. Matt and I have become such good friends with them, and have enjoyed being apart of such fun seasons with them, from just before they became engaged to them now being married! Their wedding was absolutely beautiful and nothing short of representing them in a beautiful and perfect way.
My hubs and I are so blessed to be apart of the Student Ministry at Harvester, and wouldn’t change being there for the world. We love these families.
