You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge in the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. -Galatians 5:13

Janet Miller, board member at Westminster Community Center, has followed this outlook her entire life. Around fifteen years ago, Janet felt a strong sense of need at Westminster and decided it was time for her to help.

Janet knew about Westminster through her church and because her husband played basketball at their facility as a young teen. The more involved she became, the more passion she developed for Westminster. During her time as a board member, Janet has also served as secretary, organizing board meetings and being responsible for note keeping.

“I really just felt that the need was there- the need for volunteers and people who truly cared about those they were serving,” Janet explained. “Jeff is the one who jump-started my motivation to be heavily involved with the board. He is one of those people who radiates kindness everywhere he goes. I truly admire the adamant work he does for our community.”

The children are what keep the light in Janet’s eyes when it comes to volunteering. Westminster organizes a Christmas Drive each year, donating gifts to families throughout the community. Children don’t always understand why their school friends receive gifts and they didn’t. Giving them a gift means the world to them and it is something Janet looks forward to each year.

“The Bible tells us the poor will always be with us. There will always be a need and your time means a lot,” Janet noted. “Volunteering does not mean opening your wallet, but opening your heart to those that need you. Just because you don’t know Westminster doesn’t mean that can’t change today!”

If there’s one thing Janet wants the community to understand is how important it is to give back. “Jeff treats all the participants with the utmost respect. He wants everyone to understand that hardship is simply a season of life that you can overcome,” Janet added. “Give time and love to your community, and your community will give it right back to you.”

    Together with almost everything that appears to be building inside this subject matter, a significant percentage of perspectives are actually quite exciting. Nevertheless, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to us that your opinions are not completely justified and in reality you are generally your self not really thoroughly convinced of your point. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.
