I am actively involved at my church, Emmanuel Lutheran, where I serve on the Worship & Music Committee. This committee is responsible for budgeting and planning the worship life of our congregation. I also report monthly for the two subcommittees I chair. As the chair of the Association of Acolytes & Crucifers, I schedule participants for weekly services and am responsible for gown up keep and training. I also serve as the Chair/Coordinating Chief Usher on the Usher's League, the other subcommittee I chair. My responsibilities for this position include scheduling ushers for weekly services and maintaining a roster. I also sing in the church's Chancel Choir as well as ring with the Bell Choir. I will be attending the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering & the SEPA Synod Assembly this summer.
