Raymie Veneble

In Our Stories by Kim Eiffert

Hello, my name is Raymie Venable, and today I want to share with you my journey back to the Methodist church. A journey which began in the United Methodist church but was often a winding road with no real home. As an adult, I often “tried’ churches but never found a home. Finding Grace Avenue United Methodist Church through a random encounter was exactly what God placed in our path to find our spiritual home.

I don’t know how God works, but I do know that I am most at home when I find myself in the company of curious and uncertain seekers.

My first experience at GAUMC was at a Women’s Night where I was invited to attend by my sweet neighbor who thought I would fit in with several of the regular attendees.

Even during this difficult time of COVID, the Frisco Helpers (FH) Ministry continued to provide household repair, maintenance, and safety services to the seniors and special-needs residents of Frisco. They placed a heavy focus on safety aids—grab bars in bath areas to provide support for those who are at risk for falling, installation of toilet safety frames and wheelchair ramps, and off-set door hinges to provide a safer and a more accessible environment.

Mayfield Family – Joyfully Connected

In Our Stories by Kim Eiffert

Harper’s grandparents live out in the country so we visit often bringing them produce and sweet treats. We walk around their flower gardens and look for bugs, we bird watch, plant seeds and give great “air hugs”. Our visits have given us special, peaceful, yet still distanced, time with the grandparents without the added commotion of a big family event. The time with them has been very precious.
