Glory Sightings at New Hope
Audrey Hill became a member of New Hope when Grace UMC was adopted by New Hope UMC. She really thought that there would be nothing for her to do in this "big church" but come to worship and enjoy the good preaching--but God knew "Miss Audrey" had more to give!
Audrey has been a member of the Valrico Garden Club for decades and served as President until 2017. Her gift with flower arranging was well known at Grace UMC where, over the years, she created many beautiful arrangements and unique center-pieces for banquets and special occasions.
When the leader of one of our "extravagant hospitality" missions, (that of using Sunday's altar flowers for bouquets for shut-ins and special remembrances), heard about Miss Audrey's gift, (thank-you Gloria DeVore!), she approached her about creating the arrangements. Thank-you, Melanie Salava for the inspiration and for delivering the re-arrangements!
Having now completed the 4th week of beautiful "re-arrangements," Miss Audrey, who will be 88 on October 17, agreed to let us publish her picture with some of her work! She says," Now I know God's not finished with me yet!"
