Florene Elliott has been a member of Cottage Hill Baptist Church, Pleasant Grove, since 1958. She worked with the preschool Sunday School department for several decades and has been involved in Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU). An ongoing ministry for Elliott is visiting church members who are sick or homebound, oftentimes bringing them food. “Some [people] don’t have outside help from their families — they live away,” she
explained. “You can fill that need.”

Q: What was your upbringing like?
A: I was brought up in church. We grew up in a Christian home, [and] my mother taught Sunday School. I was never saved, never born again, until I was 28.

Q: So how did you come to know the Lord?
A: We had a three-day revival (at church). I didn’t make a decision while … there, but the Holy Spirit didn’t let go. I was saved at home in the early morning hours. I made a profession of faith the following Sunday (at Cottage Hill Baptist).

Q: What ministries have you been involved in?
A: I worked with VBS (Vacation Bible School). I’ve been involved in WMU at the church. We have our Joy Club (the church’s senior adult group).

Q: What difference has Jesus Christ made in your life?
A: It changes everything when you accept the Lord.
