Our church secretary, Sue Braun, drives the Pastor and Parishioners crazy, it's in her job description. Sue has three boys, ages 16-25. When not in work you can find her buried in a book, editing her photography, spending time with her dogs Goose and Oscar or friends.
Ms. Caton comes to us on the heals of a long Music career!
Our nationally accredited pre-school program, Here Wee Grow, blooms and grows under the watchful eye of our director, Phyllis Phelan, who founded this program more than 24 years ago.
The real work of sharing Christ's love is done by the dedicated members of our church. Each person makes a difference that impacts the life of someone else. We invite you to join our loving and committed fellowship.
Steve takes care of our building! He is behind the scenes making sure that the preschool and the church are in good order.
Without this young man our Online Sunday Service would not be as good as it is! He will be continuing at UConn in the Fall of 2022, majoring in Computer Science.
Goose or Oscar often keep Sue company when she comes into the office. She has tried to bring them both in at the same time but they truly are worse than 2 year olds!
