Our interim pastor is Cathy Turrentine. She comes to ordained ministry after a long career as a college administrator. Pastor Cathy is a story teller, both in the children's message and in her sermons. She says that the weekly Bible Study group (Wednesdays at 10:00 AM) is the most fun she has all week. Outside of church, Pastor Cathy loves to read and garden and spoil her grandchildren.
Peter Ayer is the church's longtime sexton. He says, "For me, it's all about theater - my faith, my politics, everything! Almost always when I start a conversation with someone, my first thing to say is, 'Tell me what drama is in your life and what play do you wish someone would produce.' This applies to my oldest friends and to my grandchildren, too."
Shirley Stokes has been the church's administrative assistant since 2012. She also serves as the administrative assistant at the Unitarian-Universalist church in Laconia, working Monday-Wednesday mornings here and Tuesday-Thursday afternoons there. She writes, "The past seven years, it has been a joy to be employed at FCCM. It's a home to loving and kind people. Outside the office, my time is spent with grandchildren and appreciating nature in the vegetable garden and on the kayak. I'm always available to help friends paint various walls, to keep the body flexible."
Nancy Narducci is our organist and choir director. Music has always been a part of her life, from her youth, to her time as an elementary school music teacher, to her music ministry in churches in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. When she is not singing or playing keyboard, you can find her at her sewing machine or spending time with her two grandsons.
