Karen Jacobi (and family!), Janitor

When the Jacobi family is not busy on their dairy farm near Hepburn, you might find some or all of us cleaning at the church. It is our joy to serve in this way. We especially, genuinely, enjoy cleaning up “craft debris”- bits of construction paper, glitter and glue. This indicates that the little children are a loved and important part of our church family!
