Updated Staff Office Hours

The COVID 19 pandemic changed the way in which people work and interact in every organization including congregations.  Increasingly people interact with congregational staff online via text, emails or chats.  At the same time, some folks like to interact face-to-face with congregational staff.

At its recent council meeting, our council discussed ways in which we could best provide for interaction between the congregational staff, members of the congregation and visitors to the campus.  The consensus was that, while some remote work was the best for staff members, each fulltime program and support staff would establish hours each week in which they would be working onsite in the office.  The schedule below outlines when each respective staff member will be working onsite:

Lori Teitlebaum, Ministry Support Specialist
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – 8:30 – noon.

Sarah Smit, Director of Communications and Engagement
Wednesday – 9:00 – noon

Alyssa Terry, Director of Children and Youth Ministry
Tuesday, 10:00 – 3:00

Pastor Tamika, Associate Pastor
Monday, by appointment, Tuesday and Thursday, 10:00 – 1:00, Wednesday, 11:00 – 2:00

Pastor Mike, Senior Pastor
Tuesday – Friday, 9:00 – noon

A couple of things to note:

  • The main phone line (410-465-2977) is always covered, Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 4:00. On days when Lori is working remotely, the phones are typically transferred to her cell phone.
  • Pastor Mike and Pastor Tamika are often in the office at other times in addition to those listed above.  Likewise, there are times when pastoral emergencies cause them to be absent from their established office hours.
  • A pastor can always be reached in the event of an emergency by utilizing the emergency phone line: 410-465-6779
