    You may wonder what you can expect from the music ministry. First let me assure you that I plan to continue the fine tradition of the Chancel Choir that I inherited due to the work of Harry Hall and Bill Phifer.  I have never gone to a church that already had such a fine choir.  We will soon begin rehearsals with both Youth Choir II and the Handbell Choir.  As time goes on and people show interest we hope the music ministry will grow.

Laura writes-   I have a Degree in Office Systems Technology and 13 years experience in the secretarial field.  I have worked as an Office Manager for a local Audio/Visual Firm and also for East Tennessee Children's Hospital as a secretary.  I left my full-time job to become a stay-at-home mom in June 1997 when my son was born.  As he got older, a part-time opportunity became available FCPC.  I prayed about the decision and was led to join the staff in January of 1999.  Now we are expecting a daughter in February of 2003 and I'll be able to take a  few months off to spend with her, then return to my job in May.  Being able to work a few days a week is truly a blessing.  I feel that God called me here to use my time and talents for HIS work.
