Welcome to our new Choir Director and Youth Leader

Herbert Lamb will be joining us in the choir loft in September. Herb is not new to our church, as he was baptized and confirmed here by Rev. Stanley Moore as a youth. Herb, his wife and daughter currently live in Kingston, NY, where his daughter attends Kingston High School. Herb recently retired from Music Education at the Newburgh Enlarged School District. He has a wealth of experience with choirs of all ages. He has directed the Mid-Hudson Women's Choir, The Hurley Reformed Church Choir, and the Overlook United Methodist Church choir.

Amber Biechman will begin as our new Youth Leader Sunday, September 10. She will be in touch with all youth in grades 6-12 soon. Any questions about youth group please contact Amber by email at or leave a message for her at the church office.
