Wendy Morrison Church Secretary
What can we say about Wendy….. Hmmm I have to think on this a little while. I’ll get back to you. She’s been here 20 years. I’ll try to think of three things. She prepares all the bulletins, inserts and announcements. Keeps all the churches records. Pays the bills all the while keeping all of us straight. Ask and ye shall receive.. She is Wonder Woman!
Betty Burnell Minister of Music
Betty leads the Chancel Choir and our children’s choir. Betty is responsible for the selection of music to interface with the sermons each week. She is responsible for guiding the vision of our music department, choir and all elements of other music related activities. Responsibilities include administrative tasks, scheduling, identifying, practice and presenting all functions relating to our music ministry. Praise be to God!
Jamie Kwisnek Youth Coordinator
Jamies mission is to help create an environment where our youth are exposed to the teachings of the bible and equip them with knowledge and scriptures so they may learn all about Jesus. Ultimately so they come to love him, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Doing this while preparing them for the issues of the world and equipping them for both physical and spiritual growth. Whats all this without having a little fun along the way. She plans and coordinates the many youth activities they are involved in.
Music Accompanist Debbie Gray
Debbie has been a member of Westhaven all her life. She has been our Accompanist for 19 years. Debbie works closely with our Minister of Music helping to plan, prepare and lay out the needed music for our choir. Debbie practices with the choir every week and prepares and plays those wonderful notes every Sunday making those beautiful sounds for our Lord. Debbie then files away that weeks music and gets to start all over again.
Building Security Wayne Brewer
This guy gets to do it all. Mr. Fix it, if it can be repaired quickly. He is the guy that goes in early and gets to stay after everyone is gone. He turns on and off the heat, the AC, checks for lights on or off and the water too. He even starts the coffee early so the Sunday School attendees can get that morning coffee. Wayne job is one of the most important at the church. Locking and unlocking the doors and seeing that every thing is secure. We take a lot of things for granted. Thats because Wayne has already been there.
Deacon Chair Janet Monday
Janet works along side and helps by leading our body of Deacons. Our Deacons serve our body of believers. They have family assignments which allows them to oversea the needs of both spiritual and temporal matters of their families. Our Deacons give support to our pastor through prayer, wise counseling and wisdom. Our Deacon are involved in the work of God through the church. Deacons are to “serve” as God leads them.
