Maddie Schubert

Kids Ministry Intern

Maddie has been attending Grace with her family for eight years and has recently taken up the task of directing our children's ministries. In her free time, you'll find Maddie baking, watching Netflix, and looking for new plants to add to her collection.

Pat Nicholson

Office Manager

Pat has been a member of Grace for nine years and has been Office Manager for two, coming out of retirement to help serve the church. She is one of several “California” transplants at the church and is very happy that God has brought her here.  When she isn’t working in the church office, she’s spending time with her huge family (some of whom are members of the church) usually gathered around a table filled with some form of pasta smothered in a rich homemade tomato sauce.

Elders & Deacons

The Elders

Grace Church is led by a group of Elders tasked to help shepherd and care for the church. An elder is called by God to be a spiritual mentor to others. He willingly serves as a model and leader for the congregation (Acts 14.23; 1 Peter 5.1-4; 1 Timothy 3; Titus 1; Acts 20.28-31). The Elder Council provides spiritual oversight to guide and grow the church.  

The Deacons

A deacon is respected for spiritual wisdom and faithful service. The deacon has a sensitive ear to the congregation’s needs. The Bible speaks to this important ministry in Acts 6.1-6 and 1 Timothy 3.8-13. The Deacon Council serves the physical needs of the congregation..
