WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!All new members-21-Mar2021

Received by the Congregation on March 21st

Al and Ellen Smith –  We are delighted to welcome the Smiths as members of the congregation! Al is officially retired, and Ellen continues to work for PC(USA) World Mission as the Regional Liaison for Central & Eastern Europe. They have three adult daughters: Allison in Sheboygan, Meg in St. Louis and Emma who lives here in Green Bay and is already a member of our church.  They have a 9-month-old puppy and two cats that came back from Germany with them. They lived ten years in Moscow and nine in Berlin, with a year in Green Bay in between. Al enjoys fishing while Ellen knits socks primarily because they are small and portable!

Grace Estes Collins — Grace is Pastor Katie’s daughter and a lover of all things musical and theater. She has completed two years of her undergraduate degree but is taking some time off now from school during COVID.  She currently works as a nanny for a family in Bellevue, spending her days with three adorable girls having tea parties and playing in mud puddles. She loves to draw and paint, and her favorite family member is their 12-year-old cat, Boots.

DeShawn Estes Collins — DeShawn is Pastor Katie’s son who graduated from high school in St. Paul last spring in the early days of the pandemic. He loves soccer and hockey and has played much more of the first than the second. Shawn looks forward to getting into a training program for firefighters eventually, but currently works as a security guard on the third shift at the paper mill in DePere.  He loved working at Titletown over the winter at the ice rink and tubing hill and he looks forward to seeing his first Packer game in person next year.

2020-09-20 Pastor Katie worship service (24) after vote confirmation-opt

On March 18, most Session members along with Pastor Katie, Loni McCormick and Bobbie Hull, received training on the sanctuary’s new projector screen and camera from our own Scott Wittman, who was part of the installation crew from Camera Corner Connecting Point. All three proved surprisingly easy to operate and will greatly enhance our virtual and in-person worship experiences. We are already using the camera and screen every Sunday for virtual worship and the projector made its debut at Connie Greenawald’s retirement celebration on March 7. Look for all of our new gear to be put to lots of use soon!
If you are interested in learning how to use our new church assets, please contact Bruce Deadman at We are in the process of setting up an additional training session.
