Director of Music Ministry
Laura H. Parker
St. Andrews’ Music Ministry is ALIVE and well. This summer, we have provided a variety of music for our special Sermon Series – we’ve had solos, ladies chorus, men’s chorus, full choir, and piano 4-hand. Our Adult Choir participated in a “Christmas In July” choral reading session mixed in with some fellowship and fun. At the end of July, we had a number of our SAUMC folks attend the Sacred Music Conference at Virginia Wesleyan for training, Our Praise Team is in full swing! And our handbells ringers return to rehearsals beginning August 21st. All Music programs will officially resume regular practices the week of September 4th. If you are interested in being a part of the Music Ministry here at St. Andrew’s UMC, please contact Laura Parker at NewFirePW@msn.com . “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!” ~Psalm 150: 6
While pastoral appointments frequently change, Beth has been a constant at St. Andrew's since 1997. Leaving behind a job at a bank in the mortgage industry, Beth has guided multiple pastors as they transition to St. Andrew's.
When not coordinating the church calendar, producing our monthly newsletter and weekly worship materials, or answering the phones, Beth enjoys working in her yard when the weather permits or reading a good book. She values time spent with her friends, as well as her four felines.
