Office Administrator: Lucy Emerson

When calling the church office, all are greeted by the friendly voice of Lucy Emerson who serves as the church’s office administrator. Lucy’s experience as librarian helps her bring order to our office operations and records. Outside of the office, she loves gardening and fishing. For someone from Louisiana and Virginia, it’s a bit of an adjustment to conditions in Maine but Lucy has survived black flies and snow and is delighted to be here!
