Staff Transitions

We wanted to share with you two updates on our recent staffing


Susan Cahoon, our Receptionist & Weekday Ministries Bookkeeper, will serve as the interim Preschool Director. Susan worked previously as a Preschool Teacher and is familiar with the program. She will ably fill the gap as the Weekday Ministries Board considers more permanent staffing options.
Tim Messina, who previously served as the Technology Coordinator for the ConneXion Services and as a Choral Scholar, will serve as the interim ConneXion Worship Leader. This will allow time for consideration of the long-term needs and vision for these worship services in making a permanent staffing decision.

We are grateful for Susan and Tim for their willingness to step into the gap and ensure that we maintain the wonderful ministries in both of these arenas.

Yours in Christ,
Tim Barrett (SPRC Chair)
Jennifer Haddock (Weekday Ministries Chair)

Ben Alexander (Senior Pastor)
