Brenda Charles

Church Secretary & Bookkeeper

Brenda honed her welcoming and organizational skills during 27 years as a flight attendant, keeping even demanding first class passengers happy while flying around the world. Now, she makes it look easy to organize our office, curate the calendar, and pay the bills that keep us in business. Her gifts to our church include the perspective she provides us from years involved in other congregations, including  Antioch Ministry, where her husband is now the pastor.

Kathy Barnett


Kathy has led our church music ministry for 30+ years.  She is multi-talented, playing organ and piano, singing, and coaching great music out of volunteer choirs, soloists, and music team leaders.  Beyond the music she makes, Kathy’s gift to our church is calling out talent from everyone, even younger kids how to share their music with the congregation.  Her husband and three adult daughters share the family love for music, and she has fun with two young granddaughters.  Contact her at  or leave a message at 206-362-6878
