We are excited to celebrate one of our youth members this month as the Volunteer Spotlight. Zoe Paraskevopoulos has a heart as big as her last name! She is a beautiful, generous young lady who shares her gifts of time and talent with MANY groups here at Trietsch.
Zoe has been at Trietsch her whole life. She was baptized here as a baby, confirmed here and continues to serve as a teenager, and an ALMOST adult. Zoe credits her servant's heart to the way her parents, Randee and Nick, demonstrated and encouraged her and her sister, Ali, to always think of others and be kind. She says that she has always found joy in doing things for other people and as she got older, she found ways to combine her desire to serve with her personal interests and activities.
Zoe serves many areas here at Trietsch. Virtually every Sunday, you can find her working a camera in the 8 am worship service for media and leading songs in The Anchor Children's Worship at 9:30 and 11 am, as well as volunteering with Stage Right drama ministry, leadership in Uth Kwior, and even occasionally playing her cello with the orchestra.
Outside of church, she is also a member of the Flower Mound High School Theater Department's Dramatic Paws and Tech Paws where she works many shows as well as student teaching at Footlights Dance Studio where she has been a student for 15 years! At Footlights, she is a member of the Footnotes Musical Theater Team and a mentor and leader to her family group there as well. Zoe laughs remembering one time when her parents had to actually tell her she had to limit her volunteering a bit and focus on school because she was helping so much!
We appreciate Zoe so much for all she does for our church and for the kingdom of God. What an incredible example of leadership and service for all of us at any age!
"Volunteering is really a joyful experience. If you find a way to help doing something you enjoy, it's more fun than you might expect." - Zoe Paraskevopoulos
