Laura offers a warm welcome to our visitors, and helps everyone to find their “niche” in church activities and projects. She works with our Membership Committee and guides newcomers through the process of becoming members of our church. During the regular church year (September through mid-June) Laura is at church on Sunday mornings. She is “off duty” during July and August, but you can find out more about membership by emailing the Chair of the Membership Committee during those months.
Alice handles our communications, finances, and building management and helps keep our congregation running smoothly. She is in the church office Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM until 1:30 PM, September through June. During the summer her hours are reduced, but she checks messages frequently.
