“These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”
1 Peter 1:7
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Dorothy is no stranger to the Grace Church family. She and her husband, Steve, have been members since 1987. Their adult children, Heath and Haley, were active in the children and youth ministries programs throughout their formative years.
Moreover, Dorothy served on the Session for six years and on the Grace staff two previous times, first as the Director of Recreational Ministries and later as the Director of Student Ministries. Recently, she retired from neighboring Pines Presbyterian Church where she served as the Director of the Preschool/Kindergarten for 10 years. It would be an understatement to say that she hit the ground running. The Lord has provided just the right person at just the right time to serve in this interim role.
Lindsey is a native Houstonian and graduate of Texas A&M. She also has received a M.A. in Transformational Urban Leadership from Azusa Pacific University. She has had the opportunity to minister and serve in several countries, including the Philippines where she lived between 2012-2015 serving alongside an indigenous church planting community.
Lindsey has worked at Grace since October 2015. She believes the middle school years are some of the most formative and wants each middle schooler to know the God who created them and loves them. She hopes to inspire and disciple the students at Grace to grow in their love for Christ and for their neighbors.
In her free time Lindsey can be found walking the various trails Houston has to offer, enjoying the outdoors if the weather is nice, visiting with her friends and family, participating in a yoga class, or relaxing with a cup of coffee and good book.
This class is offered each Spring. The next class will be Sundays, January 12 – May 10, 2020. Confirmation is designed for 8th grade students who are ready to claim their faith as their own! We will utilize Scripture and the Church Creeds to guide students through the story of God and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and a member of His church. Each student will come to understand the scope of the narrative of Scripture, write a personal Story of Faith, and answer the 40 Questions of Faith from their Catechism journal. Upon successful completion of the class, your student will become a full member of Grace Presbyterian Church. Check back here for more information in the Fall.
