Stork Ministry –Marge Hanna Zeig, Coordinator
Karin Schwabe and Karen Peterson Saunders, the founders of this ministry in 2011, wanted parents of newborns who might be unable to attend services for a couple of weeks to know they are still an important part of the fold, need not lose contact with our church community, or unnecessarily fall under the radar. This lovely ministry acknowledges new births and supports parents, including first-time mothers, during the first few days after the birth of a new baby.
We are so pleased to introduce Cheri Kurki as the new Coordinator for our Stork Ministry. This ministry acknowledges new births and supports parents, including first-time mothers, during the first few days after the birth of a new baby. This welcome includes delivery of a “basket” of goodies for the new baby and mother, useful information and messages from our parish nurse, Mo Higgins, as well as from Rev Kathy. Cheri and her husband John are new members to COHS, transferring this past June from St. Thomas’ Whitemarsh and also from a prior residence in North Dakota (see profile in November Spiritus). Cheri will be working with Arianna Druckenmiller and Beatrice Ingham who help with this delightful ministry.
