First Pres Welcomes our
New Director of Women's Ministry--
Emily Wood

 I am honored and so excited to introduce myself as the new Director of Women’s Ministry at First Pres! My husband, Casey, and I have been members since 2005, were married in the church in 2006, and both of our girls, Marienne (8) and Noelle (6), were baptized here. My parents, Dan and Mary McWhorter, are members here too since moving to Amarillo a few years ago, and several of our other family members are also members here at First Pres! Our lives have been immeasurably enriched as we’ve experienced God’s grace and love to us through this church community over the past 14 years. One of my favorite memories is planning the Women’s Retreat in 2009 along with a wonderful and helpful group of friends. I was also privileged to serve on the Vision Path team in 2008, Howard’s senior pastor nominating committee in 2009-10, and as an Elder from 2014-2016. Casey and I were also blessed early in our marriage to get to facilitate a young couples home group on Wednesday nights from 2007-2016, and another joy for me is getting to occasionally host the 1105 service downstairs in a space my own husband renovated for our church!

I’m thankful for the many strong ties God has given us to First Pres, and I’m in awe and so grateful for how He led me into this new role as well. My hope is that I can get to know each of you women in our church better and spend more time with those of you I already know! I look forward to supporting the incredible work God is already doing here among our Women’s Ministry thanks to the leadership of Sherrie Lovato and others. My vision is to continue to grow Women’s Ministry and make it a more visible and accessible part of our church so that each woman knows she has a place here at First Pres; to strengthen the ties between our different generations of women through mentoring relationships so that our older women can guide our younger women with wisdom, peace, and perspective; and to take what we learn in our studies and small groups and put it into practice by reaching out and making a difference in our community. I’m looking forward to the future and all that God has planned for us here at First Pres, and I’m so thankful to get to be a part of it!
