Member Spotlight

Adele Merkel

How long have you been attending GT? 

I have been attending Glad Tidings since 1988.

Who is someone from the Bible that you admire (apart from any member of the Trinity) and why is that the case?

I admire Ruth because of her commitment to her mother-in-law after her husband died. She left her homeland and had no idea of what lay ahead and she committed to Naomi that her God would be her God.

What is a favorite book of the Bible or Bible verse of yours and why is that the case?

Ecclesiastes 3:1 is significant to me.  In life we wonder why things happen or don't happen. This just reminds us that we may not understand, but God always does.

What is a humorous church memory that you have? 

At church camp you never know what is going to happen when you have teenagers acting out their version of skits that require several female characters and you mostly have males.

What is something that you appreciate about GT? 

GT is very much a family. We may be small, but everyone truly is concerned for each other.

Why should somebody consider visiting GT?

GT is very much like going to visit a friend-- come as you are and you feel like you are a part, not a stranger.
