Linda Mareno joined Trinity Baptist Church in 1990 after she and her family returned to New York from Belgium. Linda and Ralph along with their two children have lived in numerous states and countries during the 20 years that Ralph served in the U.S. Army. In 2017, after 28 years, Linda retired as a secretary for a local company that provides equipment for nuclear power plants nationally and internationally. During the nearly 30 years as a member of Trinity, Linda has served on various committees and continues to teach in our Children’s Department and AWANA program. Her passion for teaching was developed during the early years of her new life in Christ. Pastor Teachey in Fayetteville, North Carolina shared the plan of salvation with Linda. Realizing that she could be forgiven of her sin because Jesus Christ had taken the punishment for that sin changed her. This new relationship with Jesus has inspired a heartfelt desire for others to know the joy of a forgiven life through a right relationship with Christ Jesus.
