On Sunday, July 12, following the worship service, join us for a farewell reception, wishing Amanda well as she leaves her staff position as communications administrator at First Baptist.
A note from Amanda:
I have truly been blessed this past year to work with and serve some of the kindest people here at The First Baptist Church of Redlands. It’s been an honor to tell some of your incredible stories and, for a short season, to be a part of your church family.
July 9, 2015 will be my last day working for FBCR. I have accepted a full-time editor position at a Christian publishing house in Covina.
I am truly thankful for all that FBCR has given me this past year. Most of all, the chance to do what I love for a church that deserves all the best and more.
Thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcome.
And so, the July issue of the Tapestry is the last one I will ever put together. I’ve loved being the editor of this newsletter, writing stories about the people of First Baptist and getting to interview quite a number of you.
From my first issue last July interviewing Mark Carpenter about his trip to Nicaragua to the issue in November where I interviewed Shellie Skinner and JoAnn Stringer about their love of cooking to this July issue where I got to hear Lynn West’s story, which you can read on the very next page — I’ve loved listening to all of you, and I know I am wiser because of it.
If you would like to stay in touch with me and my writing ventures, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or to visit my website: amandawarnerbooks.com.
Thank you again.
