Sunday, July 16,
will be a very special day at Round Mountain Baptist Church. It has
been designated Ellen Vaughn Appreciation Day. This is a day that is
well over due. If anyone has ever earned special recognition for
making her life count for the Lord and for her church, it is Ellen.
We have many faithful workers in Round Mountain Baptist Church, but
no one has given more time and spent more energy in serving this
church than this lady. I've never known her to seek any kind of
special recognition, but that is even more reason that it should be
It was more than twenty years ago that Ellen and her
husband Ralph joined the church here. They both went to work
immediately. Ralph did things that no one else seemed interested in
doing. Things like building guard rails on the steps to the
baptistery, or building a secure cabinet for the public address
system. Ellen has always just done whatever needed to be done.
Unfortunately, we lost Ralph several years ago. It was a hard time
for her, of course, but it just seemed to intensify her commitment
toward working for the Lord and her church.
For many years
Ellen has done a fine job leading the music. She has also served as
treasurer, and guards the funds of the church something like the
federal government guards Fort Knox. If you don't know what Fort
Knox is, it is where the government keeps its stash of gold. I would
be remiss if I did not mention that she has been immensely loyal to
the pastor, and that is something I do not take for granted. I hope
that all of our people will help to make this a very special day.
Sincerely, your pastor
