Thankful Thursday 2/28/19

During this month of love and on this day of thanks, we pause to meet and express gratitude for the Gravel Hill staff. They welcome each of us as we walk through the doors. As we move into Gravel Hill to open our thoughts and spirit to draw closer to our Heavenly Father, the staff has worked diligently to prepare a meaningful worship experience, provide a clean facility, and create connection opportunities for those gathering to become engaged.

Gravel Hill Staff

Each person gathered in these pictures fill their role with a servant’s heart. Many of you have met or seen Pastor Doug, Pastor Shawn, or Visitation Pastor Joe. There are several others who are working behind the scenes to prepare and provide for you. Let’s meet them.


Sunday mornings offer a range of opportunities to worship God, learn about Him, and serve others for His glory.

Joyce Lochinger


The worship experience is blessed by the creativity of our worship leader, Joyce. She gathers information from the pastor for the message being shared, prepares the media, coordinates information with other staff, and practices with the praise team to provide a meaningful experience for you.

Gravel Hill - Shauna


Our Education Minister, Shauna, works to provide content for the Sunday school classrooms, leaders for those classes, and is present each week. She  offers a friendly hello and direction (if needed) to all who arrive to learn about God. The young ones recognize her warm greeting and reciprocate with a smile, giggle, or wave.


Tony Rose


Look behind the drums on a Sunday morning and you may see Lay Mobilizer, Tony. While he is serving through his drumming talent, volunteers are also serving in the Holy Grounds, one of the many connection opportunities Tony organizes for living out God’s call on your life. (Check the Sunday bulletin and Beacon newsletter for more opportunities.)




Dawn Schaffer


If you have ever called the church to book a space, ask a question, or get some help, chances are you have gotten to speak with our Business Administrator, Dawn. She handles the flow of facility information. Dawn directs questions and information to the proper places while managing the day to day on site workings and gracefully troubleshoots any snafus that may arise.

Katie Landis


Our Social Media Manager, Katie, connects Gravel Hill with the digital world. From the website to Facebook to Twitter (check our connections at the bottom of the page), look for weekly posts.
