We have been so thankful for Monique Wischusen and her ministry among us as the Director of our Verdery Counseling Center. She has been a source of hope and healing for numerous clients, parents and children over her valuable time here at First Baptist Church and I have been so thankful to have been serving as a partner in ministry.
We have all also been blessed by her weekly words of wisdom through Monique's Meditations. Each week in our weekly email update, Monique has offered insights and brief suggestions for better living and healthy coping. We are indebted to the many ways that she has touched our lives and given a sense of perspective and grace.
I have the sad but also happy news of sharing that she is resigning as our Director of the VCC; but her reason is to focus on being a mom. Monique and Peter have the brand new and beautiful task of raising their lovely daughter, LaRue. Peter also has begun a new journey as a co-pastor in a new church start through CBF.
We hope that they both will continue to stay connected to us, but want to wish them well in their exciting new journey as a family.
Reception for Monique, May 5th at 9:45am
As a part of our hopes for them, we will be hosting a reception in Monique's honor on May 5th at 9:45 immediately following Fresh Start worship. We hope many of you can join us as we wish Monique, Peter and LaRue beautiful blessings for this next stage of their lives together.
Thank you for everything, Monique.
Congratulations and God Bless!
