Transitions and Celebrations: Deacon Pat Derry and Building Maintenance Supervisor Jeff Barth

Join us as we celebrate and give thanks for the work of our staff members who are leaving Gloria Dei.

Jeff Barth, our Building Maintenance Supervisor, has accepted a new position effective August 27, 2016. Jeff joined our staff in 2016, and has been a tireless worker maintaining our building and grounds. We give thanks for his time with us, and wish him well in his new position. There will be a reception for Jeff between services on August 26. All are welcome to come to say farewell to him. If you’d like to contribute to a gift for Jeff, please mark an envelope and send to the church office.
