Sally was born and raised in Michigan, and came to Lancaster in 1993. She says, “I was wondering what new direction God had in mind for me in retirement. I knew it was not my style to be idle. This opportunity to serve God through Covenant came along at just the right time, convincing me that God has led me here.”

Dolly has been our organist since the mid-1970s, when she succeeded Mildred Wissler as organist. Amazing fact: Covenant has had only two organists since our current sanctuary was built and the organ installed in about 1926.

Kingdom Kids Choir Director and Contemporary Worship Leader

E-Mail:

“I love teaching children to sing! We combine fun warm up songs with learning our anthems. A children’s choir is the perfect place to begin teaching them singing skills. Ask the choir what a acappella or forte mean and they can tell you! Finding songs that teach the Bible and faith values is very important to me. Plus, the children need to enjoy the songs they sing.”
