Gerick named new Minister of Modern Worship

Believing that God is calling LaGrange First to create a worship service that is rooted in tradition, planted in the present, and that will bear fruit for the future, the Staff Parish Relations Committee is pleased to announce the hiring of Mary Elizabeth Gerick as our Minister of Modern Worship. Mary Elizabeth officially became part of our church staff on August 9.

Mary Elizabeth and her best friend, Daisy (pictured), have moved to LaGrange from Kennesaw, where she has been pursuing a degree in Public Relations from Kennesaw State University. With more than two years of experience in organizing and leading modern worship services at Hillside United Methodist Church, Mary Elizabeth brings a genuine and abiding faith in Jesus Christ, a relational disposition and people-focused outlook, and exceptional musical talent. 

Mary Elizabeth and Daisy love to explore new outdoor destinations. Be sure to introduce yourself when you see them walking The Thread or frequenting our local coffee houses!

Mary Elizabeth will be working with the church team to build and plan a modern worship service that will provide another on-ramp into the life of our congregation. The service will launch later this fall.
