  • Sheila - Youth Director

    My teaching career at Salem Community High School included sponsoring several student organizations such as Student Council and Mock Trail.  In addition, I led church youth groups for several years.  My husband, Dwain, and I are life-long United Methodists.  Our son, Jake, is an attorney in Arizona, and our daughter, Whitney, is a counselor.

    I am excited to connect with our youth and be involved in activities with them that will provide learning, service to others and Christian fellowship.

  • Diane - Office Manager

    I grew up in Salem, am married with one step-daughter, a daughter and a son.  I went to college in order to pursue a career in accounting.  I have always wanted a career where I would be able to work with numbers and help others.  I found that and more with SGUMC.  Everyone here is kind, thoughtful, and loving.  I feel very blessed that I have been given this opportunity and for the people that I have come to know and care deeply for.
