Acorn Café Celebrations!

We have such outstanding volunteers here at Five Oaks, that I love when we can take the opportunity to acknowledge them.

Today I’m taking a moment to celebrate Peg Benson, who was our Acorn Café Team Leader for the past SIX years, and Tammy & Gene Sheldon, who have taken over that role this summer.

I’m so grateful for Peg and her family, who have faithfully (and literally!) SERVED our congregation in this position. Peg has shown all of her volunteers and our church family what it means to be a true servant. Her kindness, smile, and listening ear have made the Acorn Café a great place to serve at Five Oaks! We’re thankful that even though Peg won’t leading the Acorn Team any longer, you’ll still see her around, as she has taken on a bigger role with our church staff. Thank you, Peg!

I’m also excited to introduce you to our new Acorn Café leaders – Tammy & Gene Sheldon! They’ve both been fixtures at Acorn Café for a while, so you have likely seen them there. Tammy will be our main leader, our point person for the volunteers, and Gene will handle the training of our new volunteers. They both bring great experience and wonderful enthusiasm for heading up the Acorn Café – the social hub of the church! Welcome, Tammy & Gene - We’re so glad to have you take on this role!

When you see any of these three around, take a minute to say Hi, and thank them for their dedication to Five Oaks!

Until next time…
