Emily Velarde, who began her employment at Dayspring last summer as Office Administrator, has resigned effective March 1, due to health concerns. It was with much sadness that we accepted Emily’s resignation. She was an amazing colleague and an outstanding addition to the Dayspring community. Even though Emily and her husband Daniel plan to continue worshiping at Dayspring, her caring attitude and professionalism will be sorely missed in the church office. Please remember Emily in your thoughts and prayers.
We are now accepting applications for our Administrative Coordinator position. View the Job Description . If you are interested, please email your resume to David Barnhouse, Staff Parish Relations Committee Chair, at by March 23 .
