Sometimes I see my journey as having come full circle into church music. I began at Rock Spring as a child in the Choristers choir. I then went off and pursued my vocal performance studies at Indiana University, where I received both my Bachelor and Master of Vocal Performance degrees. I was teaching voice privately and teaching choral music in the public schools when I won the regional Metropolitan National Council Auditions and went to the Finals at the Met. I wound my way to NYC and lived there on and off, where I pursued and furthered my professional singing career. Asked to come back “and help out” at Rock Spring, I now find myself being the Director of Music for well over a decade. What a wonderful time it has been; learning, growing, laughing, teaching and performing. Now my two boys are singing in Choristers choir. The circle certainly feels complete. My own faith journey would not have happened without the love and faith of the wonderful musicians and the community of Rock Spring.

Do you have an empty seat in your car on Sunday mornings?  Would you like to fill that seat with another Rock Springer who could use a ride to church? 

Calling all youth! It’s our first summer “PopUp YoRS.” Summer is the perfect time to have a cold lunch... So we’ll gather in the Saegmuller Room after church and then walk to Zinga for frozen yogurt.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
