Marilyn is a long-time member of our Creston Presbyterian family. She and her husband, Ted, are a vital part of our ongoing ministries. Among the many duties Marilyn has accepted in service to the Lord is that of our choir director. Her love of music and people make her a perfect fit for our "Grace Driven Family." When you visit, make sure you introduce yourself to this gracious lady. If you're interested, ask her how you can become a part of our happy choir family.
We are pleased to welcome Bruce Gradwohl to our staff. He and his wife, Carol, live in Wadsworth, Ohio. He comes to us with a love for the Lord and many years of experience playing the organ for churches in our area.
