Although I am a new face at First Covenant Church in Willmar, I am not new to the area or to the church office. I have spent over 15 years working in various church offices. Over the years, I have served in the church anywhere there was a need -- as a Sunday School teacher (preschool through adult ages), in women’s ministries, as a Bible study leader, missions director, youth group leader, music/worship director, as a hostess, event planner, librarian, pianist, soloist, janitor, as well as serving on various boards, councils and committees.
I met my husband, Noel, while we were both attending Mankato State University and we were married at the First Covenant Church in Worthington. Following his graduation, from MSU, we moved back to his hometown of Montevideo, and made our home there and raised our four children.
Currently, Noel and I are working hard to keep up with our nine amazing grandchildren and a wild pack of “grand”dogs! Or (depending on the day) it might be a wild pack of grandchildren and amazing grand-dogs? I am an avid reader who enjoys too many hobbies including travel, movies, sewing, cooking, music, and a plethora of needlework.
I am so excited about this new chapter of my life starting at First Covenant Church in Willmar. Stop in to the office and say hello -- the candy jar is always full unless the rest of the staff beats you to it!
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.- Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.- 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NKJV)
