Director of Hospitality & Connection
Nancy is often a first point of contact for visitors and newcomers to the church. Nancy seeks to maintain a welcoming culture at SMPC, both on Sunday mornings and through a wide array of fellowship groups and special events, from bluegrass concerts to Mystery Mixer nights.
Director of Communications
Realizing that churches call for a multigenerational approach to communication, Donna works to share the life of the church through all channels, including the website, social media, print, graphic design, video and radio.
Freda keeps the church running smoothly. As administrator, she oversees grounds and facilities, maintains the church calendar and coordinates schedules and staff operations. If you have a question about a service or program at SMPC, chances are good that Freda will have an answer.
Rev. Jessica Tidwell-Weinzierl
Director of Youth Ministry
Jessica joined our staff in December 2015 and is excited to work with our Middle and High School students. She and husband, Evan, are happy to join the SMPC family.
Mary Katheryne Zagora
Mary Katheryne calls herself the bookkeeper lady, because she likes to say "bookkeeper." She keeps the books! Not like the Bibles, just the financial books. She also helps the Funds Management committee with budgeting and financial reporting duties.
