Madelene Miller, director of Children’s and Deaf Ministries at New Covenant Fellowship, will speak at the Scenic City Women's Network on Thursday, Feb. 27, at noon at the Mountain City Club.  

Mrs. Miller is a teacher, administrator, and a Bible Study leader. She received her bachelor’s degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and worked for the IBM Corporation as a marketing representative and systems engineer.  Mrs. Miller answered the Lord’s challenge to “choose you this day who you will serve” by resigning from IBM and moving to Chattanooga where she earned a master’s degree from Tennessee Temple University in education.   

Mrs. Miller has been a teacher for the deaf, a middle school teacher, a Christian school administrator, and a trainer for Child Evangelism Fellowship.  She has also served on the boards of several local nonprofit organizations.   

During an “Expanding Your Borders” campaign for New Covenant, Mrs. Miller asked God what she could give Him.  She said God showed her he wanted to use the skills he had developed in her for the ministry at New Covenant Fellowship Church.  She is currently director of Children’s Ministries for New Covenant Fellowship, is on the planning committee for the Women’s Ministry, and director of the Deaf Ministry.  Mrs. Miller is the wife of Pastor Bernie Miller and they have one son, Zachary.

Mrs. Miller will discuss "The Gift of Joy."  Her message will focus on :the God who has promised to never leave us or forsake us has blessed us with a precious gift.  That gift is joy.  He knows our make up, and He understands our frailties and needs. Without joy we would succumb to depression and despair, but the grace of God has gifted us with Himself and with His Presence comes joy." 

The registration deadline is Tuesday at noon.  Cost is $20, $15 is the non-profit rate, paid employee of a 501c3 organization.  The menu will include chicken florentine with spinach cream sauce, squash casserole, potatoes au gratin, salad and dessert, pecan pie or coconut cake.

Walking Among Memories, The USS LST-325

Later I traveled to Normandy where I stood on the sand and made scuff marks with my shoes on Omaha Beach and climbed the hill to the magnificent American Cemetery there. I again walked among the many, many tomb stones so neatly and ... (click for more)
