Annette Roth: Steward of the Month – February 2018

My name is Annette Roth.  I consider St. John’s Church my second family since I began attending weekly Sunday School and VBS at the age of 7 years.  I was confirmed, married, and my 3 sons were baptized and confirmed at this church. Because I was thankful for the church members who enriched my life through their Christian faith and the many activities which were available, I wanted to give others the same opportunities while sharing my faith with them.

In the past, I taught Sunday School and VBS, and played on the church volleyball team (a short-lived social event with local churches).  Today I can be seen as a lector, gift presentor, or communion assistant during the Sunday services.  I am a member of GIFT and coordinator of the annual spaghetti dinner.  Over 30 years ago I joined the Altar Guild and have been the president for the past 20 years.

I feel blessed to be a member of this church family and enjoy participating in the many events/committees offered by the church.  It is a wonderful feeling to know you’re helping someone, while at the same time enjoying an activity with your family.
