Carole Barone - ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT
Active in the Methodist church all her life Carole and family transferred their membership to First UMC September 23, 1962. They had just moved to Fairless Hills from Central, Pennsylvania. "This church has been my home church ever since! Serving in so many areas of the church since my early teen-age year, serving God has become second nature. I continue to follow through on my obligation made in my membership vows. I have been in the church office as secretary for 45 years! Serving the members of this congregation has been a rewarding and joyful experience! God blesses those who serve Him in many ways."
Kelly Jo Stevenson - SENIOR HIGH YOUTH COORDINATOR
My name is Kelly Jo Stevenson and I am the Youth Coordinator of our Sr. High Youth Group. To me, youth ministries represent a merging of my mind, talents, and creativity, allowing me to share it with the people I love. I am blessed to be a part of a group that brings all of this to the table each and every week! I became the Youth Coordinator eleven years ago at the age of 23 years, when a young person can be easily drawn into the corruptions of the world. Although I was raised in the church and was a member of the youth group through my teen years, I returned from college unsure of my place in the world. I was at the point in my life where the church was either going to lose me, or use me. The Pastor at the time made sure I was not going to be lost! He said to me, “who better to lead this group of young people than someone who lived it herself"! For those who know me and my sense of humor, you can only imagine my response to that statement! My mother had been my youth coordinator as a teen and was a role model for the importance of involvement in the church and the rewards of volunteerism. I ended up embracing the Pastor's offer and never dreamed I would still be here today! I am currently about to start my semester of Student Teaching to finish my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds. I am also excited to know my passion for children will grow into a deeper commitment not only for the children of our church, but alsofor the children of the world!
JoAnn Minter - MUSIC DIRECTOR
I came to this church in 2006. I was asked to provide the powerpoint for the services. Shortly after my husband and myself joined reJOYce Praise Band. I was an active member of reJOYce until April 2013 when at that time I became the Contemporary music director.
I have always been active in church choirs since I was young.
I enjoy being apart of and leading this great group of instrumentalists and singers!
