Lisa has been at the helm of the music ministries of First Church for 27 years. She heads up the music for our Sunday worship services, directs the chancel choir, the children’s choirs, and leads the handbells. We are so privileged to have Lisa here with us and we think you’ll agree as soon as you experience the diverse and spirit-filled music that is a part of life here at First Church!
