Organist – Martha Hall

Martha Hall

My name is Martha Hall.  I serve Faith as organist for the Sunday morning traditional service as well as for seasonal and special services.  I plan the traditional service and special music for it, such as including instrumentalists to play along with the organ during hymns or musical selections.  I also enjoy picking choral music and accompanying singers from soloist and duets to quartets and choirs in these services.  My goal is to pick meaningful music that reflects the Scripture readings for each Sunday to praise and worship our Lord.

I have been blessed with a wonderful family--my husband and our two boys.  I love to read and study my Bible.  I also enjoy sporting activities such as volleyball, biking, hiking, aerobics, water sports and more.  Traveling and exploring new places, playing cards, chess, and ping pong are some of my other interests.

Secretary – Debbie Houck

Debbie Houck

Hi, my name is Debbie Houck.

For the past 25 years, I have been a member of Faith Lutheran Church, thankful for the opportunity to call Faith not only my Church Home, but more importantly, my Church Family.  I feel very thankful to have the opportunity to serve God through my church, and in turn, do my part to impact our community.  I believe that every day is a fresh opportunity from God to share His Good News with others.  I pray that I can use this opportunity to grow spiritually in my journey with God, and also, in turn, further this blessing by helping others along the way.

My husband and I have been married for 36 years; we enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren.

If you are looking for a church home, we welcome you to stop by and visit us here at Faith Lutheran.
