For over 35 years, Leola UMC has been very blessed to have Lorraine Gernert share her talents as an organist and pianist.  She has provided joy and spirituality through music. Lorraine will be stepping down from this role at the end of January 2021.  On behalf of the SPRC, I want to express our deepest gratitude for her time and dedication to Leola UMC through her music ministry. Thank you is not enough; and we will celebrate with her sometime this summer when we can gather, in person. She and Lee will continue to worship with us at Leola UMC, just from a little further back in the pews. 😊 Thank you, Lorraine!!!
