Amada Simula

What I actually do at St. Philip’s…

My title is Publications and Membership Coordinator. I create the weekly bulletins, announcements, E-News, and The Friend. If you need a file or need something filed, I'm the one to do it! I love helping everyone here at St. Philip's and am blessed to have found such a wonderful church AND workplace.

My favorite Bible verse …

Philippians 4:8 Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

When I’m not at St. Philip’s you can find me …

Rock Climbing, Cooking, Sewing, Painting, Gardening & Camping (When in season), spending time with my family of 5 and our Cairn Terrier. Music is a part of my life and I sing all the time (much to my families joy or chagrin!) We enjoy theater, live music, and being a part of our community in Columbia Heights.

My favorite Bible character is...

Mary Magdalene, because she stood by Jesus' side through his entire crucifixion. She stayed by his grave and was the first person to preach that Jesus had risen from the dead. I think she is fantastic role model, that staying loyal and strong with God, is possible, no matter how hard it may seem at times. She inspires me.
