Meet new Members Doug & Brenda C.

Getting to know our new members is always a joy. Doug and Brenda recently joined St. Mark and have shared some background information to help us with that. Doug grew up in Lakewood, Washington and Brenda in central California. Both were raised in Christian families and have attended church all their lives. Doug has always been a Lutheran, and Brenda since they were married.

Doug attended Pacific Lutheran University where he received both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Music. He taught Band on high school and college levels, as well as upper level math. Brenda worked in Human Resources for the State of Washington for 30 years. Both are currently retired.

Doug and Brenda love to travel and say they get away as often as possible. Doug currently plays instruments in three musical groups. Brenda enjoys card making, scrapbooking and other crafts.

When sharing first impressions of our church, Doug and Brenda say they love the music, and the work of both Pastors. They also appreciate the friendly members they have met at St. Mark.

So, if you haven’t already introduced yourself to Doug and Brenda, next time you see them give them a big St. Mark welcome!
