Berthoud United Methodist Church
Shhhhh! It’s time to recognize our quiet disciple for this year. As most of you know, the quiet disciple is someone who we thank for contributing to the church but work behind the scenes and require very little formal recognition. This year we want to celebrate two quiet disciples. Both began their life in our church in 1952. She taught Sunday school to the youngest members of the church and he taught the older kids. When it became time to build our current church they were instrumental in the fund raising and the actual construction. As time moved on they continued to be disciples for those coming to the Berthoud United Methodist Church. She has served as the chair to the United Methodist Women Faith Circle for years. One of the claims to fame held by both of them is the annual noodle making that is used as a church fund raiser. As well as leading a group of volunteers in the noodle making process, she also makes many angel food cakes from the left over egg whites from noodle making, these are sold at the annual craft fair and are a favorite of the entire community. She announced 10 years ago at age 80 that she was going to retire from the noodle making business, ten years later she is still involved. She is one of our favorite cooks and provides whatever is needed for our food functions. He maintains the church grounds and keeps the landscape around the church looking beautiful. This year the trustees gave him an award to honor his service, his response was ‘I don’t know why you are giving me this, I am still doing it.” Both are examples to us how we can continue to serve and make a difference even as we move into our 90’s. The decorations that have graced our Christmas tree in the church for years were in part contributed by Priscilla. What can we say about these disciples. We all need to thank them for their years of quiet serving as they have made a difference in all of our lives at the church. Thank you Bob. Thank you Priscilla. You are our quiet disciples.
