Peace and Joy  to YOU from Community United Church of Christ in Morton, llinois

On my first day at this church, I was greeted by our Council President Tim, Secretary Julie and a bright, lovely arrangement of flowers from Council!  I thank God for all of the people who are helping me transition! Finally, all of my church office boxes are unpacked!  I am feeling at home. My bright cozy office is ready for visitors when that it possible in this Pandemic time! 

I live with my husband Dave, and our pets Bounder the cat, Chico the Golden Retriever and several brightly colored fish. Between us, we have 4 children and 2 grandchildren!  I enjoy reading, bicycling, kayaking, camping, travel and children. My commute from Moline to Morton allows me to relax, read great audible books and phone people (hands-free) as I drive. 

I was ‘called’ as the Interim Pastor of this friendly, caring and progressive church

beginning on December 1, 2020.  Along with Interim and Transformational work,   I am also honored and pleased to be pastor.  I anticipate preaching, teaching, providing pastoral care and more.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me (Mon. – Thurs.) at church (309-266-7263.)  My email is

Whoever you arewherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!

We are a open and welcoming community of faith that believes that each person, created in the image of God, holds a piece of the truth.

       Therefore we respect each person’s unique spiritual journey.
