Becky Clark, Missioner for Worship

Becky ClarkBecky is a native Baltimorean and a cradle Episcopalian. She came to Memorial more than 30 years ago after about 10 years of church-free living, and immediately felt at home. Since then she has been involved in almost everything at least once—acolytes, parish dinners, rummage sales, stewardship, food pickup from the Giant, vestry and a host of committees. Her real call is to the Altar Guild. Her recent retirement from The Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, where she was a data analyst for 38 years, gives her even more time to be at Memorial and help in whatever capacity, particularly with worship.

 

 

Bev Sanderson, Missioner for Christian Formation for Children

Bev SandersonParticipating in Christian Formation is a wonderful way for me to nurture my continued passion for teaching, now that I am a retired school teacher. A variety of experiences including teaching in early childhood Montessori education (18 mos – 5 years) , middle school, as well as special education (high school level, emotional/behaviorial and learning disabilities have brought me to this moment in time. Currently, I am volunteering in an ESOL program with Korean and Chinese adults. As a parent, I have raised a young child in a church setting and taught Sunday school (K – 4th) and worked with youth groups and Church hour programs.   I enjoy keeping in touch on a regular basis with all of the wonderful people with whom I taught Sunday school and youth programs – for it is really the rich relationships that we build in Christian context that nurtures a lifelong faith. I remember how I wanted the best for my daughter, Cara, 27 who is an engineer expecting her first child. The cycle begins anew. I am a member of the EFM program and nurture my faith through prayer , Bible Study and dialoging with Christian friends. I am excited for this year to begin – getting to know you better and learning what is the very best we can provide for our Children in Christian Formation.   Shalom, Bev Sanderson
