We are fortunate at Trinity Lutheran Church to be welcoming not one, but two, new additions to our church staff this week! One of these is a familiar face around TLC, while the other is a relative newcomer. We wanted to introduce them both in their new roles, so that God's people can adequately welcome them!
Becky Emery, Church Secretary
Becky and her family are members of Trinity and actively involved in a variety of congregational ministries.
What interested you in the position of church secretary?
"I've always wanted to be a church secretary. So when I recently began considering part-time work, and this position came along at the same time, I was interested. Matt and I both thought it could be a good fit, and here I am!"
How do you hope to help the ministry of TLC in this role?
"I hope to be the behind-the-scenes help to any ministry going on at TLC. Communication, organization, and Christian friendship are among my priorities in this service."
When you're not caring for your family or serving at church, what do you enjoy doing?
"I am almost always reading, and I love to kayak. Trying to figure out a way to do those simultaneously."
Anything else you'd like to share?
"I'm looking forward to tending to the daily needs of our congregation, helping to spread the good news of Jesus to our neighbors, and serving faithfully in whatever task God puts in my path."
Becky will be occupying the church office from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Kasie Gage, Church Cleaning
Kasie and her family (husband Derrick and kids Kaitlyn, Emmalyn, and Parker) are local Arcadians and newcomers to our Trinity family. You'll no doubt be learning more about the Gages in future communications.
Where are you from originally, and what brought you to Arcadia?
"I am originally from Gaylord, MI. After living in Frankfort where our children attend school, we purchased our home in Arcadia 4 yrs ago. We knew this was where we were meant to be. The many trails, wildlife and community. Everything about it feels like home."
Why do you think it's important that our building keeps clean?
"I am looking forward to keeping the church beautiful for all our neighbors. There’s something very special about the history and details of Trinity Lutheran Arcadia."
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
"In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love a peaceful morning with a cup of coffee, our kids sporting events, fishing and concerts in the summer time."
Anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
"My family would like to thank everyone from the church that have made us feel so welcome in such a short time. After searching and praying for a church to call home, we know God has led us here. :)"
