I have actively followed Christ’s leadership for the last twenty years, and have been part of this church fellowship for the last 10. I have volunteered in nearly every area of the children’s department (VBS, nursery, teaching, reception, coordinator, etc.), serve on the discipleship and growth committee, and participate in the mentor program. I was a leader in the Stephen’s Ministry, am part of the nominating committee, volunteer in the church office, and have helped to organize the community couples Bible study groups. I am a retired physician and attend church with my husband Rick.
