The Whatleys are committed to giving back to the church that has given them so much.

PRUMC Members, Alexa & Tom Whatley

It all started in the pew. One Sunday morning in May 2014, Alexa Holloway and Tom Whatley noticed one another at the 11:15 service. They each made note of the other’s name in the attendance book, and spoke after the closing hymn.

Alexa and Tom’s paths did not cross again until the following summer at a church-sponsored young adults brunch, but they both remembered meeting the previous spring. And, in July 2015, the timing was just right. Tom, a Financial Audit Manager at KPMG, and Alexa, an Account Manager at KForce Staffing, began dating soon after the brunch. On December 9th, they were married at Trinity United Methodist Church in Savannah. PRUMC’s own Leslie Watkins officiated.

The Whatleys are committed to giving back to the church that has given them so much. Alexa especially loves the Great Day of Service and Christmas Kindness. Tom leads a MYF group of 9th grade boys, and has served on the Nicaragua Youth trip. They have been on a mission trip to Belize together and served on the young adults’ council. They plan to continue working with the youth, volunteering in various ways, and of course, attending worship services together, since that is how it all started!
