New Church Musician Hired! 2016
As our current members and friends all know--after 38 years serving as the dynamic duo of music at First Presbyterian--Sue and Toby Saltarelli have retired. But hold on! Even though we hired a Music Director back in June, 2015 (Steve Luxbacher), we still could not find someone to play the organ. Sue graciously delayed her retirement as we searched. We are happy to announce that, with the help of God, we have filled the position! Chris Luxbacher, wife of our music director Steve, will be joining us starting July 10th. With her comes their daughter, Katie. Please join in welcoming Chris and Katie!
With the hiring of a new musician, we bring to a close the 38 year period of Sue and Toby Saltarelli's leadership of our music program. Their accomplishment in Christ cannot be overstated. They were not just staff, but very active members and part of the family. They both served above and beyond as disciples, even as they led our music program. Please join us in celebrating Sue and Toby's long service to Christ in this place. We have a celebration planning committee making preparations for the June 26, 2016, 2 p.m. celebration. Let Toby and Sue know how much we love them and appreciate all they continue to do in the life and work of Franklin First Presbyterian Church!
