Our special guest speaker this Sunday will be Mrs. Becky Koch, president of the South Carolina Women of the ELCA. She and her husband, Bobby Koch, are members of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Greenwood. Bobby is the youngest of six children of former Mt. Horeb pastor, The Reverend John H. Koch, Jr. and his wife Clare. Becky served as a board member and Vice President on the SC WELCA Synodical Board until she was elected president. She will be bringing us an enthusiastic message at both services entitled “ Bold Women and Superheroes”.
The children’s sermon will be delivered by Aubrey Caniff-Kesecker, the wife of Matthew, our Seminary intern. Aubrey is a native of Pelion, SC. She graduated from Presbyterian College and taught kindergarten for five years before taking a break to spend time with their little girl, Nora. She is currently working part time as office manager at St. Andrews Lutheran Church.
All the women of our church are Women of the ELCA whether or not they belong to an organized WELCA Circle. There are four Circles at Mt. Horeb and they invite anyone who would like to join them to contact one of their leaders listed on pages 78-79 in the church directory.
