Tracey has been a member of Rome First UMC since 1998. She and her husband Clayton have been attending regularly since 2002 when they got married. She has been the Lay leader for Rome First, on the nominating committee, helped with youth and children's ministry, kept the nursery on Sunday mornings and a member of United Methodist Women. Tracey and Clayton have one child, Clay who is a part of the youth group at Rome First.
Tracy leads the ministry TGIF, a group that started in conjunction with Celebrate Recovery when the church hosted it. It was for those with different needs such as social skills, life skills, and just needing a place to belong. "When Celebrate Recovery stopped, Rome First adopted our group for Wednesday nights. We have been meeting for approximately 8 years. We have dinner, fellowship, and a lesson. We have read books by Max Lucado, Beth Moore, and many others. We read together as a group or watch a movie and discuss. We focus on the fact that we need to be a community for each other and support one another. Sometimes you make your family instead of being given one", Tracey says. The group also works on giving back. They helped with the making of Prayer Beads for the 2016 General Conference. Each meeting, the group collects money to donate to such organizations as Stop Hunger Now and Foster Care Support. This past year, they were able to donate $200 at Christmas.
Tracey is an Educational Specialist in Leadership and has a Clinical Certificate of Competence and is a Speech-Language Pathologist and works with the Floyd County School System. She leads the Floyd Autism Skills for Life - a group for Adults with Autism - to work on social skills and building relationships.
