In addition to her work at LCUMC, she has been the director of the Leelanau Children’s Choir/Leelanau Youth Ensemble for 25 years.

Margaret’s faith walk began when she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior and was baptized at eight years old. She has walked with Jesus from that day on and is passionate about her ministry of almost four decades, being on staff in churches both in Illinois and northern Michigan. She feels so fortunate to be a part of this warm, friendly, and welcoming church!

“God is great all the time and has led me to my two positions here at LCUMC. I first began working with youth in 2004 as a volunteer when my children were in middle school and high school. I became the Youth Director for middle school and high school youth in 2007 and then became the Christian Education Director in 2009. God has led me to where he wants and needs me to be and I am excited to share my love for Christ with everyone I encounter each day, oftentimes without using words.
I became the Administrative Assistant in 2014 and enjoy bringing the gifts of administration that God has blessed me with to LCUMC.
In my free time, my greatest joy is spending time with my family, cooking, traveling, camping, and serving others. My husband, Rich, and I have five grown adult children, Kyle, Danielle, Arthur, Ryan, Clayton, and one beautiful granddaughter, Lauren. My life has always focused on children and youth and I believe that is why God has called me to share Christ’s love for our youth and children here at LCUMC and in our greater community. God has been faithful to me by leading me and opening doors, I pray you would get to experience Him as well.”
