Lori currently serves as our main greeter and source of ministry information. She is very familiar with the who, what, where, & when's of our organization and even leads her own Monday night Women's Bible study.  You can find her almost every Sunday at the front door with a big smile on her face.

If you have any questions as a guest or visitor, Lori is the person you will want to find when you first arrive for a worship service or event.
