Meet Rebecca Diehl
Rebecca Diehl is our Special Needs Coordinator. Rebecca has lived in Fredericksburg for twenty years and has attended Spotswood from the age of four. She graduated from Liberty University in 2019 with a major in Family and Child Development and a minor in Psychology.
Because she had to overcome many health situations as a child, Rebecca saw children and their families who did not have the love and support that she had. From a young age, God placed a passion for helping children and their families in her heart but she did not know where that was going to lead me.
I started volunteering as a middle schooler with Spotswood’s VBC and then on Sundays in the nursery. When I started college, I thought I wanted to major in Exercise science and become an Pediatric Occupational Therapist, but God had a bigger plan as he directed me to change my major to Family and Child Development and minoring in Psychology. As I got more involved with different family outreaches programs such as, early learning centers, social services and working for the state of Virginia as a caregiver for families God has made my passion clearer to helping families and children with special needs within the church. As God led me to this amazing opportunity to be Spotswood’s Special Needs Coordinator, I am so amazed how God has brought me full circle to the place where I first got involved with children and families.
I look forward to getting to know each family individually and helping you in any way I can. My goal is to make your child or children and you feel at home, loved by God, supported, and prayed for.

Spotswood Baptist Church
A podcast from Spotswood Creative designed to keep it real and honest about worship practices in the 21st century. We want to help you work through issues like:
- Choosing worship songs
- Leading as a volunteer
- Worship stereotypes
- Worship conflicts
- Figuring out if theology is right in the song you just love…or if you should just put it away.
