Ashley Miller, a longtime Bethel member, lives in a group home on the east side of Winchester/Frederick County (Wickham Terrace, 22602). She has Down Syndrome and does not drive. Upon the sickness and death of her mother, Judy, she has been unable to attend worship regularly for a while now. She really misses us! Heidi and I had dinner with her recently, and she would really love to be able to worship again regularly. Hence, this email.
I would like to have a team of people who'd be willing to offer Ashley a ride to worship and other church events. She is delightful and loves being a part of the Bethel community. Her sister, Hillary, is unavailable many Sundays because of work and her aunt is also unavailable most Sundays, although on occasion she has been able to bring her. Hillary, her legal power of attorney and guardian, is more than happy to help us facilitate such an arrangement.
So, my hope is that we could put together a team of folks who would be part of the "A Team" (Ashley team) and help her find support and comfort here with her church family.
Even if you can only offer help on occasion, let me know. Please respond to this email with your willingness and availability. I will then gather those of us together who are willing and able to help Ashley to put together a regular transportation plan.
Thank you all for your prayerful consideration!
Blessings and Peace,
