Hello!! My name is Amy Watson. As the new LOTM Church Administrator, I am excited to learn all about the church and meet the church family. This opportunity will be a great blessing to me.
Originally from Houston, TX, I just moved to Leadville a few weeks ago (in May) from Corpus Christi, TX. Living in the mountains is very different from living at the beach, and both are wonderful. However, the mountains have been calling me for a while, and I am thankful to be able to see them everyday now.
As a trained Public Historian, learning all of the rich history of Summit and Lake Counties is a dream for me. There is so much amazing history all around me, and I cannot wait for the museums and historical sites to open so I can learn more. Aside from visiting historical buildings and sites, my favorite activities are to read, journal, hike, discover new music, travel, sit by the water, and meet new people.
I have been involved in church one way or another my entire life, and l love to serve. I have been a member of a singing choir and handbell choir, taught VBS, and led praise and worship. As a former member of an intercessory prayer team, I know the importance of praying for and serving the church. I am here to help you and the Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church family, and I look forward to meeting each of you.
Thank you for this opportunity!!!
