Each year it is the privilege of each local UMC to select a Quiet Disciple — someone “exemplifies the best of the unsung heroes of our churches. A Quiet Disciple is one who goes about his or her business in ministry or service to one’s church or community, without fanfare or filling a specific position. This person is likely to be self-starting and self-directed in filling unmet needs, using his/her own time, talents and often resources.”
Robin Chavez has been a dedicated part of our children’s ministries programs for many years. She knows all the kids by name, and greets them as they come to Sunday School. She assists the children’s ministry team by prepping and collecting materials, often surprising us with ideas and supplies she has found. When there is a special event at church, she is often the first one there to help with set up and prep for children’s activities. She begins VBS prep early in January, finding ways to get involved and filling needs throughout the week. She has suffered health issues in the last few years, but that has not stopped her from being a constant presence in the lives of the children of our church. Our programs are stronger because of Robin’s dedication, and our children benefit from having this caring individual in our classrooms each week. Robin’s selfless contributions were be celebrated at the Peaks Subdistrict Spring Conference on Saturday, March 3 at First United Methodist Church of Loveland and during all three worship services at Mountain View on Sunday, March 4.
