First United Monday Spotlight

May 22, 2023

Thanks to Tori for Everything!

We'd like to thank Tori England for all her many contributions to our church family while serving as our Administrative Assistant for the past several years. Among other things, she's really helped organize and coordinate many of the day-to-day functions and activities of our church groups and members. Tori's moving into a new chapter of her career, and we'd like to wish her all the best!

We'd also like to introduce and welcome our new Administrative Assistant, Amy Witbeck. She's a graduate of Grace Christian University, holding a degree in Human Services. Amy is married to Ken and is the proud mother of two daughters. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, camping, and relaxing at the lake. Guided by a deep-rooted belief in the value of service, Amy's desire is to extend respect, kindness, and support to everyone she encounters.

Planting Begins Thursday

Don't forget, we're beginning the 14th season of our Judy Allan Memorial Garden! Everyone's invited to join us this Thursday (5/25) at 5:30pm to help with this year's planting as we start another year of growing fresh produce for area shelters (and church friends). If you'd like to help financially, go to our website (click here). The garden gnomes thank you!
