Administrative Assistant- Acia Jernigan has been our Administrative Assistant for about 15 years, and a member of the church for about 30 years. She also is on the Music and Worship Commission and enjoys planning worship and singing in the choir. When she is not singing choir music, she is belting out Broadway show tunes. She loves her church family and can’t think of a better place to work.
