Dear church family, we wanted to share with you some exciting (and bitter-sweet) staffing changes coming up in the Ebenezer office. Rachel Marks has been serving on staff for 12 years as our Office Assistant and Kids Crossing Assistant. As she and her husband Dan are expecting a baby in October and are also about to finalize the adoption of their two boys, Josh and Jacob, Rachel will be stepping down from her duties at Ebenezer to focus on her new responsibilities of motherhood. This will be effective September 28. In her stead, we are hiring two new part-time employees who will be in place by October 1st. We are pleased to announce that Jennifer Schanely will be our new Children’s Ministry Director. In this role, she will take on a new facet of leadership for Children’s Ministry as well as maintain all of the necessary administrative duties associated with it. We are also pleased to announce that Kristy Hard will be our new Office Assistant working 4 mornings per week helping out in the main office. We are looking forward to how the Lord will use both Jennifer and Kristy in the ministry at Ebenezer, and we are extremely grateful for Rachel’s many years of service.
