We LOVE our Volunteers at Lakeway Church! This month we are celebrating Sawyer and Ruby Sprott.
How long have you been attending Lakeway Church?
Ruby: Sawyer and I both started attending Lakeway Church in late September of 2020.
Why is serving important to you?
Ruby: Serving is important to me as it gives me an opportunity to help people in my community, as well as glorifying God and spreading the Good News!!
Sawyer: I’ve enjoyed teaching children from the old age of 12, through karate, and it is something I’m very passionate about. Serving with the Children’s Ministry at Lakeway Church has allowed me to continue that passion, as well as helping the children to learn and understand more about God.
How has volunteering in this ministry impacted your faith?
Ruby: Although I’ve been a Christian since I was 14 years old, I’m always learning and growing in my faith. Serving with children has helped deepen my appreciation for God’s creation. It has taught me how to be more patient, and how to listen more and act in accordance to God’s will.
Sawyer: Serving in Children’s Ministry has allowed my faith to grow and change. Just from teaching the children the weekly lessons we receive, I have learned little things that I may not have picked up on by myself.
Ruby: I’m from a small city in England, Newcastle Upon Tyne. I have lived in Austin, TX since about 2015, and I try to visit home at least once a year.
Sawyer: I’ve been vegetarian my whole life and have never tried meat or had a desire to. I also grew up in the Eanes area and went to Westlake Highschool.
