Macie Liptoi, Assistant to the Director of Music, directed the choir on Sunday as she leaves our staff to attend graduate school at Perkins School of Theology. She has been a part of the staff for almost a year. Her family joined her in singing Amazing Grace during the morning service. We wish Macie all of God’s blessings as she pursues a calling into ministry. God’s speed, Macie.
