Without Lucille’s strong leadership and work ethic, Woodmont would celebrate its 50th (anniversary) in 2011, but the church would not have a written record of its history to commemorate this special event,” Gary M. Green, a member of the history committee at Woodmont Baptist Church, Florence, said of committee chairwoman Lucille Martin. She is also one of the founders of Woodmont Baptist’s In-church ministry, which provides meals for people during a crisis.

Q: How did you come to know the Lord?
A: I came to know the Lord when I was 8 years old. ... My mother’s sister was a missionary at the time. She told me a lot of things that Christ had done in her life and that changed my perspective and that is when I decided to dedicate my life to Christ.

Q: How have you been involved in church through the years?
A: During my time at Woodmont, God has opened many, many doors for me. I have served as VBS (Vacation Bible School) director when my children were little. I have also served as WMU (Woman’s Missionary Union) director. I have always been a member of the church choir. ... I have served on the history committee for the past seven and a half years. As you can see, I have gone from one thing to the next just doing what God has led me to do. 

Q: What did you get from those ministries?
A: It is very rewarding to serve the Lord ... It really gives me a way to share my gifts that He has given me.

Q: How do you see yourself involved in church in the future?
A: I will continue to do whatever and go wherever God leads me. I will continue on until I cannot move a bone in my body. ... I live by the saying “Wherever He leads, I’ll go.”
