Barbara Myslak - Christian Formation
I have been a member of Grace Episcopal
Church since birth. I have the distinction of being a third
generation member of this parish. My mother's parents were married
here in October 1912!
I am passionate about the various service
ministries that Grace Church supports and I volunteer time to
supporting these ministries to our local residents. (ie, the
Rutherford Food Pantry, the Rutherford Kip Center).
I am currently serving Grace Church on the
Vestry and Altar Guild. Though I live 14 miles from Rutherford, I
am a “regular” at Grace. It is my home away from home!
I am committed to following our behavioral
covenant by helping others. My chosen profession of nursing affords
me the luxury of doing and caring for others.
I support Grace Church by my participation in
all its events, both spiritual as well as social.
I find one of the most fundamental aspects of
living out my faith in Jesus from Sunday to Sunday is contained in
the Scripture readings. Our interim priest, Alan, uses his sermons
to show how it applies to our 21st century living and how it is
applicable to us. I leave church feeling energized and committed to
the week ahead!
In the next 5 years, my commitment to
growth at Grace Church is with the next generation. I want to see
us connect with them so that they will lead productive, service
driven lives just as Christ has taught us.
