WELCOME TO VOLUNTEER FRIDAY!

Every other Friday we take a moment to introduce you to someone in our community who serves in one or more of Watershed's many volunteer areas: GreenHouse/Shed StudentsSunday TeamsCatapultBloc Leading, etc. The featured volunteer will then select someone he/she would like to see highlighted next.

This week, meet Kayla!

KAYLA ERWIN

Volunteer Area(s): Info Table

Why did you choose to volunteer in each of your areas?

I volunteer as a greeter because welcoming others is something I love to do. I think a person's first interaction with a church is so vital to how the rest of their experience is received, especially if that person is new! Giving a smile and a "good morning" isn't much, but if it can help someone feel seen and valued, then the reality is we're on the front lines of demonstrating what kind of community Watershed has to offer!

What has been one of your favorite moments as a volunteer? 

My favorite moments volunteering are when I connect with someone I didn't know before. Another favorite moment of mine come from my husband, Evan. You might know Evan as the man who holds the door while delivering a variety of boisterous greetings. Some of my favorite moments from the info booth have occurred during the lull of welcoming people. During those times I can usually expect some sort of entertainment (usually dancing) from my husband.

If you could use only one word to describe our Watershed community, what would it be

Authentic

Describe your perfect day in Charlotte:

My perfect day in Charlotte involves exploring the city with my husband, Evan, and our fur-child Trotter.
