Bookkeeper: Cheryl Holdwick
Cheryl's desire to work in the church office was fulfilled in 2007 when she was hired as bookkeeper/secretary. The verse that is taped to Cheryl's computer monitor is 1 Corinthians 14:12, "...Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church." Having raised their three sons at The Shores, Cheryl and Russ now want to give back by serving the church that has served them so well.
