LIZ SMITH RECEIVES
MISSION RECOGNITION AWARD
Music has always been an important part of worship at Cunningham UMC. For many years Wally White has blessed us with his incredible piano skills and choir direction. When we began online worship last year, Wally continued to provide us with wonderful piano music, but we lacked the accompanying singing. Thankfully, Liz Smith stepped in to help.
Each week Liz takes a recording of Wally playing the upcoming Sunday's hymns and blends in her own vocals. Then she returns the improved files for inclusion in the upcoming virtual worship services. Her volunteer efforts greatly enhance the online worship experience.
On Sunday, April 18, the United Methodist Women presented Liz with a Mission Recognition Award.
On behalf of the UMW Charleene Frazier stated, "You have been an amazing blessing to our congregation over this past year as you have helped us have, consistently, the added joy of 'song' in our worship services. We know that there has been a lot of time and effort involved in this offering and we are eternally grateful."
In addition to receiving the Mission Recognition Pin, the UMW made a donation to the UMW Mission Giving Fund on Liz's behalf. This donation will go to improve the lives of women, youth, and children in the US and around the world.
