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 Students, Sunday Teams, Catapult, Bloc Leading, etc. The featured volunteer will then select someone he/she would like to see highlighted next.
This week, meet Shelley!
Volunteer Area(s): Café/Info Table Team
Why did you choose to volunteer in each of your areas?
It was a really good fit for an early bird like me! Plus I love getting to know the people I worship with on Sundays and making people feel welcome - just like I felt when I first started.
What has been one of your favorite moments as a volunteer?
I love anytime I'm able to help someone new feel connected to Watershed. Visiting churches can be an experience filled with baggage and stress and I hope that in a small way I can make someone feel like their whole self will be accepted and loved.
If you could use only one word to describe our Watershed community, what would it be?
Describe your perfect day in Charlotte:
I'd start out with a yoga class at Yoga One, then brunch somewhere in South End. Explore the Mint Museum in the afternoon and close the day with a show at the Neighborhood Theater!
NEXT I'D LIKE WATERSHED TO FEATURE DESMOND SMITH BECAUSE... DES IS INVOLVED IN MANY VOLUNTEER AREAS AT WATERSHED, BUT I'M REALLY ENJOYING GETTING TO KNOW HIM AS THE LEADER OF PREFACE 2.0. HE IS SO FRIENDLY AND LEADS OUR GROUP WITH SUCH WISDOM AND KINDNESS!
