Church Secretary

Brenda Turner is our secretary - Her office hours are 9 AM to 2 PM, M-Th.

Choir Director
FCC enjoys greatly the talents of Lisa Cross as Choir Director.  In her time here, Lisa has energized the Choir with her fresh and enthusiastic approach to the musical selections for our morning worship.  Lisa teaches piano and voice through home lessons and in daycare settings.  She and her husband Andrew have five children.
Kay Cole is our organist. She also teaches at the First Presbyterian and First United Methodist Preschools. Though she makes it look easy, there's a lot of practice involved in playing an instrument with all four limbs!


Jerry and Samye Ann Vick are a Social Worker, and TISD Day Care Director, respectively. We'll let you figure out which one is the Head Custodian. They have been married for over 30 years.
