New and exciting things are going on at Brainerd Presbyterian Church. There have been adjustments and realigning of staff assignments, including Candis Potts serving as office administrator and director of Communications and e-Outreach, and Megan Johnson as the new director of Children's Ministries.
Melody Day will be one of the more visible members of the church staff. She has been appointed as assistant music director and leader of the Praise Team. Ms. Day will coordinate the contemporary music offerings and will bridge the contemporary elements of worship music with the more traditional music. She has served the church as accompanist for several months.
Dr. Tom Hammett, director of Music Ministries said, "Melody Day is an extraordinarily gifted pianist who is able to function well in many styles of music from popular, to contemporary Christian, traditional and the classics. She has a strong, joyful and effervescent personality that simply lights up the room upon arrival. Melody is a tremendous asset to our church."
A church building expansion is in the advanced planning stages which will include several new classrooms, fellowship hall, a gymnasium and other facilities for the growing and community-minded church.
Brainerd Presbyterian Church is at 1624 Jenkins Road, just off of East Brainerd Road. The office telephone number is 899-2424.
