Weekly Connections – Meet Teresa Ehret

Grace Community Family

Meet Teresa Ehret………………….



Good afternoon every one! I hope that your week is going great and trusting that God is continuing to bless each and every one of you! This week we are going to get to know Teresa Ehret just a little bit better! Such a Wonderful Woman with a heart to help others and spread the word of Christ! Tell us about your family… I have 1 daughter, Misty and she lives in Minneapolis. I have 1 dog, Alvin and he is another gift I received from God. My extended family here in New Ulm is Cheri, Betty and Eric Ehret. I have been employed at Kraft Foods for over 20 years. I was married once and now divorced.   What brought you to GCC?…. My daughter and I were having lunch at Applebee’s one day and met up with Dave and Barb Stuk and they told us about Grace Community Church and I’ve been coming here ever since.  What GCC activities/groups do you participate in? I am part of the woman’s bible study, I help with kitchen activities, I make out the schedule for worship service (so if you would like to be more involved with the kitchen, just let me know) I am also part of the Caring and Sharing Team. I oversee the prayer chain and forward prayer/praise requests.  If you could share 1 thing with everyone you talked to about why you attend GCC, what would it be?  How God is at work in HIS church and our small group bible study. Being part of a small group really helps you to get to know people and develop authentic friendships, we study how God wants us to live our lives by studying the bible.
