SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER POSITION OPEN

Sunday School Teacher

Scott Marsh

Custodian

Scott started with us in December 2011 and has been a wonderful addition to the staff. “Our buildings have never been cleaner or more well kept”, a long time church member recently said. This is all attributed to Scott and his attention to detail.

Scott goes above and beyond when it comes to the building, hanging pictures and cleaning in places no one else even notices. Scott’s family consists of his wife Angela and children Alyx, who just graduated from cosmetology school and Wyatt who just graduated from Rifle High School.

When not on church grounds you can find him at golf tournaments, school basketball and baseball games and in the summer, camping! We are blessed to have him as part of our staff.
