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.
