Our staff gives support to our congregation in many ways.
Martha Clinehens serves as our Minister of Music and the principal organist for our traditional Lutheran liturgical worship service. A life-long Lutheran, Martha grew up in a very musical home in central Minnesota. While nursing was her profession, music has always been her passion. A church musician since childhood, she has extensive experience leading congregational worship. We recently welcomed Lynn Rhyhard to join our staff as an additional organist. Our church choir offers special music approximately twice a month.
Zach Gililand serves as our worship team leader for our Morning Song service with a variety of talented muscians who have hearts to serve including Barbara, Carol Ann, Marcus, Martha, Paris, Jack and Tim. Our worship team sings and plays a wide variety of genres such as gospel, contemporary, instrumental and hymns.
Lauren Bergman leads our Children's Sunday School and our College and Young Adult Ministry. Michelle and Pat Potts lead our High School Ministry.
Denise Van Dyke is our part time church secretary. Her office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to Noon.
Our church council is elected by the congregation and given responsibility to make business decisions and provide servant leadership to the church body.
Nancy Young is our bookkeeper.
Alex is our custodian.
We appreciate our staff so much! In addition to our staff, our church is primarily run by the services of many volunteers.
