Larry & Martha Tolbert
Our Welcoming Church Family
St. Paul’s is our church family, where we can worship and praise God. I grew up in the Episcopal Church, but Larry did not. St. Paul’s is a welcoming church where we both feel at home.
One of our favorite memories of St. Paul’s is from 2013, when we rode our tandem bike across the United States, starting in Washington D.C. and ending in Anacortes, Washington. Before we left, at the Pentecost Picnic in the Park, Father Polk and Father Colin blessed us and our bike. That was such a meaningful gesture to us.
One of the ministries in which I am involved is the Altar Guild. As a teen, I was on the Junior Altar Guild at our parish in Louisville. It’s been so special to be a part of this ministry again after all these years. Many things are the same, but many things are different now. And both in good ways. I enjoy being part of the worship experience but behind the scenes. And our team is so supportive, helping us all share our gifts and talents.
I also serve as a chalice bearer, and Larry serves as a lector. This year, we are both serving as ushers.
We give to St. Paul’s because this parish and its mission and vision are important to us. We’ve been so blessed; giving to St. Paul’s allows us to make a difference in our parish community and in its outreach.
