"Why St. Paul's?": Nancy Muth

Posted on

1. What is your name? 

I was born Nancy Lee Evans and am now Nancy Muth. I’m from Chicago, IL and grew up Lutheran. I became Episcopalian while I was in college at Northwestern in Evanston, IL.

2. How long have you attended St. Paul’s?

Four years

3. What first drew you to St. Paul’s?

My husband Don is a priest and served as Interim Rector at St. Paul’s twice and that is how we first fell in love with the church, and the people here made this a great place to come back to when Don retired from full-time ministry. But it was after my daughter Anne died that I became involved in the Women’s Bible Study. Millie Merrick reached out to me and invited me to join the class when I really needed a good group of friends and support.

4. What keeps you coming back to St. Paul’s?

The people, liturgy, the beautiful music – especially lately with the added violin, our clergy, my friends… really everything!

5. In what ways do you serve our St. Paul’s community?

I serve on the vestry, am a supporter of Lantern Light, as a member of the Women’s Bible Study, and my husband Don and I hosted a Taste of Faith Dinner in the spring.

6. What is one thing you want other people to know about St. Paul’s?

St. Paul’s is authentic in ministry to all of God’s people and we have wonderful diversity in our community.
