Sharing Our Faith: Annie Eplee
Hi, my name is Annie Eplee. I came to Cove Church because my family comes here. But, I love this church. It is a great community.
The people here are diverse and I always feel accepted when I come here. Even though I am a young person, people ask me about my life and what I have been doing for the past few weeks.
I am going to college this week and everyone has been very supportive. You have asked me about the colleges I was applying to and how the process was going. It seems like you are sincerely interested in my life. As a teenager, to have people interested in your life keeps you positive and helps you keep going when it is hard.
The other reason I come to Cove because I love music. Music affects me spiritually and that is why I sing in the choir. Sometimes life makes me angry and upset. Music helps me to calm down. It has always been an important part of my life. Our choir may be small, but it is spiritual. Music is the main way that I connect with God and others. Our music is professional and well done.
I will be going to George Mason in the Mason Life Program on Friday. I want to thank you for being so nice to me, helping me grow as a Christian and being an important part of my life. I will miss you, but can’t wait to experience the music when I come home for Christmas.
