Hi, I’m Brenda Markert. I moved to the Jupiter area nine years ago to be near my daughter and her family (Cathy and her husband, Seth, plus Thomas (7th grade) and Julia (3rd grade). It’s been a great nine years here. My other daughter, Carolyn and her husband, Kevin, live in San Francisco with their dog and two cats.
I moved from Southern California where I had lived for most of my life after immigrating from Ontario, Canada at age 6. My family and I joined the local Presbyterian Church when we arrived in California. We made good friends with other families and spent summer vacations together camping at the beach or in Yosemite.
When I was a young mother, a neighbor invited me to attend Bible Study Fellowship. I had always been a believer, but this is where I developed a personal relationship with Jesus. Attending a weekly Bible study has been an important part of my life since that time, and where I have made many lifelong friends over the years. I recently retired from my career as a paralegal. Hopefully, after Covid, I’ll again be enjoying travelling, playing mahjong, and socializing with family and friends.
I have been worshiping at JupiterFIRST Church for four years. I am JFC’s Serve Coordinator who will help you connect with volunteer opportunities at JupiterFIRST as these opportunities open up. I attend Wednesday morning Bible Study, Lectionary Lab and various other Bible studies. Be sure to introduce yourself!
This church is full of awesome folks and I’m excited at this opportunity to serve you and the Lord as Serve Coordinator. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
