Where are you from? I was born and raised in Illinois.
Why do you serve at Trinity?
About 2005, when I accompanied the local community chorus, the director asked if I could fill in at the church where she also led the choir, and I agreed. After three or four months it became apparent the organist was not planning to return, so I was asked if I wanted the job. Not wanting to leave my own church or be committed to weekly rehearsals and Sunday morning services, I declined. Two years later the position was again open, and this time I accepted because it felt right. I would say the Holy Spirit provided this opportunity to use my gifts of music to accompany singers, to choose pieces for preludes and postludes that will speak to listeners and help them worship, and to help worship services run smoothly. This is my ministry.
What I like Most about Working at Trinity The people at Trinity are very friendly and appreciative, not only the choir members with whom I spend the most time, but also other congregants. I like the variety of music used.
What do you like to do when you aren't at Trinity? Hobbies include reading mysteries and memoirs, quilting, knitting socks, making family scrapbooks, and researching family history.
