Meet our newest members

Chuck and Susie Williams

We welcome Chuck and Susie back into our membership at First Presbyterian Church. Susie and Chuck have been married for about ten years. Until recently, their life together has been providing a home for foster children with disabilities. Susie has a background in the United Methodist Church. Chuck  grew up in Presbyterian Churches.

Susie has worked with disabled or at risk children in group homes, in facilities and in her own home. She has a heart for caring for children and older friends. One of her joys has been in serving at the Thanksgiving Dinner at our church because she likes to be a welcoming presence for those who need that hospitality, especially during the holidays.

Chuck is a Navy Veteran, having served in the Lower level engine room of an Aircraft Carrier. He has served as a merchandizer. He left that position and then assisted at home as a therapeutic foster parent. At present, he works the early shift at Lowes®. He enjoys singing and has sung in many ensembles. We appreciate his voice in our choir.
