Strength in religion
Tara Witcher finds her spirit at Indianapolis church
When her husband was diagnosed with cancer, Tara Witcher said she knew she needed some strength she couldn’t give herself. She began attending the Church of Acts approximately a year ago and hasn’t looked back.
“It’s just an electrifying environment,” Witcher said. “It starts when you walk in from the praise and worship. They start singing and it gets you electrified. When the pastor gets going, it is a very amazing environment.”
Witcher, who now works with the children’s ministries for the church, says she has found patience, love and is overall happier from her church experience. She says Pastor Bill Jenkins is able to relate to the audience in a way that they can take the lessons they’ve learned home.
“One of my first experiences I had there, I always wanted to be water baptized,” Witcher said. “After I got baptized, I knew that was going to be our church home. As soon as I came up out of the water, I saw it in an even more electrifying light. Ever since then, I’ve known that there’s something different about that church and it starts with the pastor and the leadership.”
What is it about your place of worship that helps you grow spiritually?
The pastor, the way he takes biblical teachings and puts them into real life situations. It gives you no questions on how to apply those teachings into your own life, which really has helped me to grow.
What is it about your place of worship that helps you to feel connected to your spouse, children or family?
We all attend. Being involved in the children’s ministry gives me more appreciation for time that I have with my family.
What is one meaningful event that has taken place at your place of worship?
Two of the great things that we’ve done are a back to school night and we also do a trick or treat night. I really like how it opened up to the community and the community can come and see what the church is about. Those two great things really draw the church and the community together.
Why would you recommend your place of worship to someone?
I really feel like it is a loving church. Everyone has just always been very caring and concerned, especially with my husband and his cancer. They are always offering prayer. There is a lot of love and a lot of living out the way Jesus wants us to be.
