Meet the Office Personnel

He works closely with Rodney Craddick, our Finance Chmn., and Linda Abernathy concerning our finances. He is in the office on Wednesday afternoons.
Joy Mooney is our bulletin/newsletter volunteer. She is responsible for getting the bulletins ready for printing and compiles the news for our monthly newsletter and gets it ready to print.
Iberia Upton is our Friday volunteer. Our office is closed for business, but Iberia comes, goes to the post office, and distributes the mail. She is responsible for sending birthday and anniversary cards to our members. Also, she prints our children’s coloring sheets for Sunday and folds the bulletins.
Our staff and volunteers are an essential part of keeping our church office running smoothly.
If you see a volunteer, give them a pat on the back for a job well done.
