Music Director and Church Secretary

Marsha Watts

Send Email

Marsha has been wrapped in music since she was a very small girl!  She has always played piano in church and always been a member of the choir, wherever she was. 

She began directing the Lakeview Handbell Ringers in 1997.  Lakeview's handbell choir meets weekly and plays often for our congregation. She began directing the Chancel Choir upon the retirement of the Choir Director in 2002. Marsha believes that the soul finds joy in God's music, and that His word can reach even the hardest heart through melody and words.
 
In January of 2009, Marsha became Lakeview's Secretary/Treasurer upon the retirement of our long time secretary. Marsha states that "This position is a joy and a chance to minister to our congregation and anyone who calls or enters the church. We now can keep in touch through e-mails, and phone messaging which helps us reach one another faster and keep our prayer chains updated and working. I strive to be a witness to anyone who comes into the church that Lakeview is an active, involved, spiritual, community and family minded church that is a blessing to be a part of."
 
God has truly blessed Lakeview with Marsha's many talents, hard work and smiling face.
