Rev. Robert F. Fuchs
I became a United Methodist as many others have, I married a life-long Methodist, Sue. Once I started attending the United Methodist Church I discovered that I was Wesleyan. If you don’t know what that means, just ask.
God has always been pursuing me and will not let go of me. When I was in the business world, I ministered to others on a regular basis. God was preparing me through both success and failure. In 2015, after a 35+ year business career, I listened to God’s call and became a Licensed Local Pastor. It is the best decision I have ever made.
I love God and I love people. It brings me joy to see people connect to Jesus Christ and follow his commandment to love one another. There is (almost) nothing I will not do, no matter how serious or silly, mainstream or unconventional, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.
My name is Lindsey Morencie, I am the Children’s Director and have been involved with this department for over 4 years now. I love having the opportunity to work with the kids, further their relationship with God, and create a lot of fun with them! We love to craft, dance, play games, and make memories. I want the kids to leave knowing CHURCH IS FUN!
