  • judy connelly

    CHOIR DIRECTOR

    Judy graduated from Albion College where she majored in music education. When she began teaching music for the Haslett Public Schools in 1959, she was excited to become part of the choir at HCC. In 1968 there was an opening in the leadership of the HCC choir. Judy volunteered to step in and lead the choirs for a month. That “temporary” position has extended now for over 45 years! For Judy, making music with enthusiastic adults, children and youth is a great joy. She is thankful that so many wonderful people are willing to share their time and talent as the choirs lead in worship here at HCC.

  • BARBARA FREEMAN

    ORGANIST/PIANIST

    Barbara is a graduate of Miami University of Ohio and the University of Illinois where at all times her musical interest has been music composition and theory: why and how music affects us as it does. She has taught piano and played in restaurants for many years, living around the country before "alighting" in the Haslett area in 1995 with her husband and son. Though her past musical experiences are varied, Barbara feels she has found her musical calling in music-making in churches. This is especially true at HCC where musical creativity has a chance to grow through numerous musical genres such as traditional, praise and gospel music. She joined the staff in June of 2001.

  • BEVERLY WEGENER

    OFFICE MANAGER

    Beverly graduated from Ferris State University with a B.S. in Health Information Management. She later earned an Associates Degree in Assessing. Her earlier years were spent in these fields. Growing children and aging parents resulted in her working on a part time basis.  This blessedly allowed her to care for her parents during the last years of their lives. Beverly became part of the professional staff at HCC in 2008. She continues to state how amazed she is by the constant love, warmth and welcome of HCC as a whole.
