Marcia Pavey Honored for 32 Years of Service
On Saturday night, July 16, 2016, the entire Main Tabernacle stood and cheered to honor Marcia Pavey for her anointed leadership of the Nursery and Bible Porch ministries. For 32 years, Marcia has managed Indian Springs’ effective program for Infants and Children.
Each year, she and her dedicated assistants presented biblically based curriculum to our smallest campers with the belief that these little ones can love Jesus and understand Bible verses. Hundreds of parents and grandparents were able to participate in our Bible study and three daily worship services because Marcia was caring for and teaching their children.
Steve Luce, President, remarked: “Marcia’s decades of service have impacted nearly everyone in the Indian Springs family. She either taught you about the Bible or has taught one of your children! Her influence will continue to be felt for generations!”
The evening that Marcia was recognized for her service, Joy Griffin, Chairman of the Nursery Ministry, presented Marcia with a lovely commemorative clock. Marcia’s daughter, Nicole Pavey Butler, is the new director of the Nursery and Bible Porch.
