I have been a member of the Church of the Redeemer for over 40 years. My children have been baptized and confirmed at The Redeemer and presently I have 2 grandchildren in the church school. Over the years, I have been on the Vestry, President of the Church Service League, (and initiated the first Christmas Market Auction), chaired the Church School Committee, chaired the Christmas Market and taught in all grades in the Church School. I founded the Outreach Committee with Nancy Avery. In 2009 I went to Uganda on a mission trip and, with students from the Beacon of Hope School, created an 18 foot mural. Recently, Angels for Outreach was an idea I had to raise money for our Outreach programs. I am now Coordinator of the Pastoral Care Committee, serve on the Altar Guild, helped with the Christmas Market Auction and am the Pastoral Committee liaison to the Church Service League. Spiritually I enjpoy reading the Bible in Margery Kennelly's Bible class and learning about my journey with Christ in spiritual formation gatherings. I love the Redeemer and look forward to serving the church as a Vestry Member.
