Christine Amore, Administrative Secretar
It's a pleasure working for Pastor Boshoven and this congregation. I began working here in September of 2010. I'm not a member of this congregation but an LCMS member at a sister church. I've met many of the members at church functions and as drop-ins to the office. I've enjoyed attending book club, movie nights and cantatas. Occasionally you will see me here on Sunday. My duties include the management of membership, attendance, baptism, confirmation, weddings and funerals. I also handle the transfers of membership. I'm responsible for preparing bulletins, newsletters and calendars. I work with many members of the church council and staff in the operation of the church.
