Organist – Paula Lee

Paula joined us just a few months ago with a special gift and love for the organ.  Paula will not only support our Sunday morning 10:50am worship hour, she’ll also support the choral ministry as rehearsal accompanist.  We’re excited about her willingness to use her gifts in service to the Lord.


Former interim accompanist – Noah Bruce

We want to express our deep appreciation to Noah for his service this past year.  He shared with us that he’ll need to step down to allow proper time for his studies at Morehead State University.  As a pastor I am very pleased with the maturity of this young man and wish him the best in the coming days.  Noah faithfully served us from October of 2016 through Sunday, October 29, 2017.  His wonderful talent will be missed by all of us at Rockford Lane.  Please join me in praying for him as he seeks God’s will in the coming days.


“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
