"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

    Music Coordinator

    I first came to Spring Glen UMC on Labor Day Sunday, September 1, 2014.  It was just a few short weeks before I began to sing in the church choir and eventually joined the church.  I have no formal music background or training, but sang in church choirs most of my life; even as a child.  Those years of experience combined with an immense love of music, prepared me to take on the challenge of Choir Director at Spring Glen when the opportunity presented itself in 2017.  The encouragement of the choir members and accompanists have given me the support necessary to be successful. 


    As Spring Glen endeavored to appeal to a more diverse demographic, we began a blended worship service to include both traditional and contemporary worship music.  In the Spring of 2018 another opportunity presented itself to lead our Praise Team.   Each week, I plan the music and coordinate with the musicians and vocalists to bring a meaningful worship experience to our congregation as we sing praises to our Lord, Jesus Christ.  I’m happy I made my church home here at Spring Glen UMC and that God has used me to serve His church in this way.
