Tara Leduke
Chair of Education
Lay Servant
Sunday School Teacher Grades 6-12
"I have always enjoyed working with the youth.  I am a mother of four beautiful children. 
My degree is in elementary education and I have been teaching since 1992. My desire is for every child to become best friends with Jesus!"
Linda Thorn
Lay Servant
Sunday School Teacher Grades Preschool-5
"I have been blessed by my experience teaching and leading youth Sunday School for
over 20 years.  As a Lay Servant, I have led Bible studies for older adults in Enfield for 7
years.  Whenever we share the stories of our faith with others, we are spreading God's light
and love to them."
Lorraine Creedon

"I love teaching church school and learning from the children.  I previously taught
junior high church school, led youth group, was a Girl Scout leader and a big sister
with Big Brothers and Sisters of Springfield.  I am married and have four children
and nine grandchildren (pictures available upon request)."
Don Crouser
Lay Servant
Adult Sunday School
Since I've been given the opportunity to lead our adult Sunday school class, I have been
transformed from a Bible reader to one who is studying the Bible. Come and join our
faith journey as we learn how to apply the scriptures to our daily lives!
Pam Lapponese
"I taught the pre-school Sunday School class for 4 years while my children were small. 
Now that they are teenagers I have moved up with them to be a Youth Group Leader. 
My faith journey continues with them as together we learn how to be actively involved
in Church activities and community projects!"
Dorie Justice
Vacation Bible School Leader
"I have been a part of this wonderful church family for more than 20 years. My goal is
to use my degree in Illustration to help our children to discover the love of Jesus by
inspiring them to use their own creativity through crafts, songs, and story telling."

Sharon Hart
Sunday School Substitute Teacher
"I have taught Sunday School and helped out with Vacation Bible School for several
years at UMCE. I love to see the children grow in their faith through stories, songs,
games, and crafts.  My own children have grown through their experiences at UMCE."
