MEET THE TABLE LEADER: Merlynn Bergen

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I am a nearly life-long believer, now retired.  Earlier I was a psychologist involved in research and teaching at Stanford University’s School of Medicine.  For many years, too, I was the training director, continuing education teacher and care giver for Stephen Ministry in my home church in Los Altos, CA.  I have two grown boys and four grandkids, spread out in middle and western USA.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT DESERT SPRINGS & HOW DID IT BECOME HOME TO YOU?

I came to Surprise, AZ to be near my mother in 2004.  I joined DSCC in 2005 after a church-search of some months.  The preaching drew me, and the wonderful people have kept me here.  Recently, with my mother now in Glory, I moved to Litchfield Park to be closer to church and my friends here.

WHERE ARE YOU SERVING AT DSCC?

My biggest commitment is Tuesday morning Women’s Bible Study.  I am active in a Life Group, meeting in my home part of the year.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VERSE & WHY?

Since high school, my favorite verses have been Philippians 4:6-7. “Be careful for nothing but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Of course I learned the verses in my King James Bible.

If you see MERLYNN around, be sure to say “Hi!”
