Deacon Sarah Brent, WORBC Mother as of May 9, 2010.

It has truly been an honor being in fellowship with her. She was an awesome woman of God and full of wisdom. She served at White Oak(s) from the “pulpit to the door”….she use to do welcomes often and that was her signature line……along with her “we welcome you once we welcome you twice.” There weren’t many in attendance in the early years, but she alongside Deaconess Sallie Robinson were the two strong towers of White Oak Run and they made sure that the church doors were always open by seeking out guest Ministers when the church was without a Pastor, and were the ones who sought out and prayed for our fourth Pastor of White Oak Run, Rev. Jacob M. Phillips. She served as a Deacon, an Usher, a member of the gospel choir, a missionary, taught and assisted with Vacation Bible School, participated in the Bowling for Seniors fundraisers, worked faithfully year after year with CulpeperFest, served on the Kitchen Committee for many years as the main cook, the Shepherds Ministry, financial secretary, executive committee member, planted flowers at the church, served on the anniversary committees, helped with the banquets; and made sure the food pantry did not go without . She volunteered to work at Kings Dominion, the Relay for Life Cancer reception, and the Culpeper Senior Site. Often took towels home to wash them, prepared the communion table year after year. If the blue goose was rolling out on a mission she would get aboard and do what she could to serve. Mother Brent loved her family and White Oak (s). Psalm 23 was her favorite scripture and Amazing Grace was one of her favorite hymns. Gladys Williams was one of her closest and dearest friends and was loved by her neighbors and friends. If there was something to do at White Oak whether it was cleaning, cooking, singing, encouraging, praying, gently guiding or working, she went above and beyond to do it with a deep dimpled smile on her face. Mother was a true Inspiration to all she came in contact with and her humble spirit will be greatly missed at White Oak.
