I am pleased to report to you that at its June stated meeting, the session of Ridglea Presbyterian Church elected to hire Virginia Welsh as our new Office Manager!
Virginia is no stranger to Ridglea, as she and her husband Chris have been members of the church for nearly 30 years. She has served faithfully as a deacon, as an elder, as a member of the most recent Pastor Nominating Committee, and in myriad other volunteer positions. She and her family are invested in the church in every possible way, and I speak for all of the staff when I say that we are thrilled to be working alongside her.
As Virginia transitions into this new role, I’m asking you to be mindful of Virginia, Chris, and their daughters when you see them in church on Sunday mornings. While it’s convenient that our new Office Manager is also a member of our church, it’s vitally important that Sundays still be reserved for worship and Sabbath. If you have something that needs her attention, please do not burden her with it on a Sunday unless it is an absolute dire emergency that cannot possibly wait the 20 hours or so until she comes in on the following Monday morning. I’ve instructed the staff and the session to be mindful of these boundaries as well.
Virginia will officially begin her work with us on Monday, June 30. For now, her e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, and her office phone number is 817-732-3388, ext. 105. Please join me in praying for the Welsh family and in welcoming Virginia to this new role in the life of our church!
