Rev. Hope Chernich
"I love to create space for people to connect with God, themselves, and others. As a pastor, I want people to know that they are loved and created in the image of God. We can’t know this or fully flourish on our own. God calls us into relationships with others where we can journey together, live into God's love and grace, and practice a new way of being in this broken world. This is the vital role of the church."
"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music." - Psalm 98:4
A lifelong church musician and Methodist, Matthew is delighted and blessed to be our music director. He leads the choir, plays the organ and piano during worship, and collaboratively selects music. Musical genres include hymns, jazz, gospel, and praise songs.
