A Message from The RectorStaff News: Director of Children’s Formation
Monday, May 3, 2021
Dear Grace-St. Luke’s Parish and School Community:
I write to share the news that Sharon Campbell, Director of Children’s Formation, will be leaving the GSL Staff for new ministry as Teacher at Lamplighter Montessori School. Sharon's last day on staff at GSL will be Friday, May 14, to take a short break before training and preparing to work with elementary classes. For approximately 10 years, Sharon has been a gifted, dedicated staff member and Catechist of parish ministry to children and their households: nursery to parents-day-out to full-time formation staff. While we give great thanks for Sharon’s talented ministry, she has expressed deep gratitude for GSL alongside the exciting new chapter of returning to the classroom.
In honor of Sharon's leave-taking, the Clergy-Staff team and households with young children will celebrate her ministry during the coming days. As the GSL community prepares for this leadership transition, I ask your prayers for Sharon and her family, as well as for my Associate Rector, the Rev. Laura F. Gettys and me as we recruit the next Staff person to lead our children’s formation ministry.
In thanksgiving for the faith that binds us,
The Reverend Ollie V. Rencher, Rector901.252.6320 | orencher [at] gracestlukes [dot] org
