Church Leadership

Marge Neal, Interim Pastor

I have always loved being a pastor; leading worship, offering the sacraments are very meaningful for me, but acting as an interim pastor is a whole other level.  This transition time is when the congregation and its’ people can be at their most vulnerable state.  Losing a beloved pastor can devastating, what do we do now, how will we proceed, and there will be grief of the relationship lost, there may even be anger; and in this liminal time, I am here to speak God’s word of hope, peace, and love.  All the while, challenging you to deepen your relationship with God, with one another, and with your community; that you may more fully be a beacon of God’s reconciling love.  This can be an adventure to discover more about yourselves, your giftedness, and to step out in faith in expanding your ministry.  What a privilege and honor it is for me to be here with the people of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection.

Sherry Ferrell

Church Office Administrator

As secretary of LCR, I feel a sense of joy working at the church.  The interaction with the parishioners always make me feel needed and appreciated.  God brought me to the church and I hope to serve him and the people that I encounter through my position

Elaine

Gregori

Traditional Service Music Director

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote, “The final aim and reason of all music is nothing other than the glorification of God and the refreshment of the spirit.” At RLC we strive to glorify God by celebrating the hymns that reflect the rich heritage of our faith in a fresh and vibrant way. Resurrection Singers, Resurrection Ringers, and Instrumentalists join together to lead this traditional worship service at 8:30.

Sarah

Shunk

Children & Youth Leader

As our Youth Activities Coordinator, I am blessed to get to know and work closely with our children, youth, and families. In addition to our wonderful teachers, I so enjoy leading Resurrection Kids during Children’s Church and helping them to grow closer to Jesus through stories, interactive games, projects, and videos. I most enjoy the kindness they exude and hearing their thought-provoking commentary during our lessons. For our Resurrection Students, I so enjoy discussing current events, viewpoints on important matters, and how faith is instrumental in their lives. We are all connected, and I enjoy inspiring our youth to become leaders who go after what they are passionate about while always putting Jesus first. We also have a lot of fun together playing games and doing surprise excursions! 

Nathan Montgomery

Assistant to the Minister

I love serving in the local church and have done so in many capacities over the years. As a former executive and lead pastor to and elder, deacon and member of boards of directors. I have a passion for the local church, seeing it grow and assisting the members of the body as they grow in their discipleship. I enjoy serving on the worship team for our contemporary service, recording and editing our online service options as well as many behind the scenes roles from our digital presence to administrative functions. Resurrection has been home for several years and I look forward to continuing to be a positive addition to the team as we continue to love, care and reach our community. While there is a level of seriousness in what we do, I find it is important that we never take ourselves too seriously. That we love, laugh and live our faith out together.
