An introduction from Megan –

I’m so excited for the opportunity to worship the Lord through song with all of you.  My husband, Andy and our three kids, Esther (6), Fenton (3) and Leland (1) moved from Iowa to Oregon in November and we have been enjoying the abundance of hiking and outdoor activity the area has to offer.  Originally from the Chicago suburbs, I taught 6-8 grade choirs and general music for 6 years and have more recently served as Music Ministry Coordinator and Youth Choir/Bell Director at a large Lutheran church.  Having grown up Presbyterian, I am thankful to be coming back to my roots and excited to have Bethany as my new church.
