Servant Leaders

Kit Bertelsen

Worship Committee Chair, Choir Director, Chief Photographer, NOMAD Liaison

I love to sing and I feel blessed to be able to share my talents when working as choir director. Music has become a big part of the worship on Sunday morning at First UMC.

As a friend once told me, "if you don't like to sing, then why in the world would you ever want to go to heaven!"

Come and join us!

David Lee Murray - Lay Servant Leader

Praise and Gospel Music Leader

David Lee is a prolific country and gospel song-writer, singer, and an inspired worship leader. Most Sunday mornings you'll find him on the guitar or keyboard, preparing us all for joyful worship through his easy-going, spirit filled music and words.

The gathering begins at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings. You won't want to miss it!

(You'll find David Lee's witness on our Welcome Page, under Lay Servant Leaders.)

Jan Metcalf


"Church has always been part of my life. Along the way, my habit of going to church became a lifestyle and a gift. I play because it is a gift I have to offer back to God and church. I enjoy it and I enjoy the sense of family here."

Rosie Mattingly

Prayer Chain Co-ordinator

Rosie is one of our spiritual giants. She is a tireless worker who always wears a smile. Along with keeping our prayer chain going, Rosie co-ordinates rummage sales, ladies luncheons, and ice cream socials. We're looking forward to enjoying one of those soon!

Jana Murray

Prayer Chain Co-ordinator

You'll find Jana's witness on our Study and Support page, under servant leaders, but Jana also serves as one of our congregational caregivers. She is the "go to" person for many in our congregation and community when they need a listening ear and a word of encouragement and love.

Joyce Ambler

Usher Co-ordinator

"Why do I coordinate the ushers? Because years ago, someone asked me to and they never came back to tell me I was done," says Joyce with a smile.

"And - I enjoy it. I enjoy greeting the people. I enjoy seeing everyone who comes in and welcoming them."

Lisa Stewart

Altar Guild

We don't know what we would do without Lisa, who is diligent in her watch over the sanctuary, making sure everything is just as it should be for Sunday worship.
