DEVOTED High school Super Conference at Angelo State University. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. – Deuteronomy 6:5 We’re all devoted to something. Just look where you spend your time, what you talk most about or who consumes your thoughts, and you’ll begin to get a pretty good idea of where your devotion lies. For far too many of us, it doesn’t seem to be with God. So what does it take to be a fully committed disciple? How do we develop into dedicated and faithful followers of Jesus? Who can we turn to in order to get some help along the way? Join Student Life in the summer of 2011 and discover how you and your students can be DEVOTED June 20th- 24th Sign up now! —$410 — $200 deposit due by April 18th

Welcome, New SHPC Members!

David & Becca Thompson have lived in Austin for 20 years and are glad to be joining their neighborhood church. Chris and Sammie are both first-graders at Mills Elementary, so David & Becca are active in Boy and Girl Scouting, too!

Elizabeth Byrd, originally from Austin, is a business coach and a trainer. You may have already seen her twin brother, Tyler, working with our student ministry.

Lynn Tunison notes, “After moving from New Jersey to Texas, I’ve been searching for a church home. I’m so happy to find one here!”

Carl & Mary Luttenbacher moved to Texas a year ago to be closer to their son and his family. Originally from Michigan, they spent 25 years as Floridians before making the switch. 9

Meet your newest leadership... The new members of the SHPC leadership team have been working hard since they were installed (yes, that’s the Presbyterian word for it!) at the end of January. After a hard-working weekend retreat at the beginning of February, they’ve all been diligently doing the jobs you’ve elected them to. Thank them the next time you see them!

Have you met our newest intern, Brit Hansen? She’s been here a few weeks already, but in case you haven’t had a chance to chat with her, I’ll let her take the mic:

Our SHPC interns have been in the news! Check out what’s been going on with Clare & Mari Lyn—

Hello, Saints! I am a senior at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, married to Todd, and I am a mother to our precocious toddler Naomi Jane. I have been participating in the Presbyterian Church my whole life, and before seminary, I was a figure skating coach, a part-time obituary writer and I worked as a designer for Better Homes and Gardens. I have a degree in English Lit and Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin, but my passion for story started as a toddler. I feel called to bring our Christian story into vibrancy from the pulpit, and to really listen to your story, fellow Saints. Thank you for letting me into the nitty-gritty of SHPC! I look forward to my semester here.

The W. P. Newell Fellowship, in recognition of superior accomplishment and readiness for ministry, was given to Mari Lyn Jones on this 2nd day of February 2011. The Award was $3000. The David L. Stitt Fellowship, in recognition of outstanding Christian character, scholarship, personality, and ability, was given to Clare Lozano on this 2nd day of February 2011. The Award was $10,000.
