We want you to get to know the awesome leadership we have at Desert Springs at our Tuesday Morning Bible Studies. Our Table Leaders study the Word, direct discussion at the tables, and pray fervently for you…EVERY WEEK!!!
MEET THE TABLE LEADER: DAWN SHPUDEJKO
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
My name is Dawn Shpudejko, and my husband is Igor. We’ve been married for fifteen years. We got married late in life. I was 44 and my husband was 52. Our first marriage for both of us!! But God’s timing is the best, and He’s the greatest matchmaker!!
We live in Pebblecreek in Goodyear and have been here a year in July. We’re originally from New Jersey where I was born and raised, so this was a major move for me. But our dream was to retire in Arizona, since our sister-in-law and nephew live in the Phoenix area. We arrived in Arizona homeless, but our house came on the market the day we arrived in Arizona!! Like I said before, God’s timing is the best!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT DESERT SPRINGS & HOW DID IT BECOME HOME TO YOU?
We were so involved in our church back in New Jersey, so we were looking for similar ministries and places to serve. We heard about DSCC through our online group here at PebbleCreek, so we started attending last August. We felt so welcomed the first Sunday and were thrilled to see adult Sunday School classes. I was especially excited about the women’s ministry and finding out the fall study was with Priscilla Shirer, my all-time favorite speaker. Needless to say, we felt like we had found our church.
WHERE ARE YOU SERVING AT DSCC?
This is my first year of being a table leader at the Tuesday Morning Bible Study, and I am eagerly looking forward to studying the book of Acts with Erica and my table ladies. I really enjoyed Erica’s bible study last spring. I also teach first grade Sunday School at 9:30 am and host with my husband a life group in our home.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VERSE & WHY?
One of my favorite verses that has spoken to my heart this past year is Ephesians 3:20.”Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.”
God has truly done immeasurably more than I ever imagined in providing not only a lovely place to live but a church family that we can truly call home.
