We are delighted to report that Adrienne Stuckey has accepted the call to serve as our new Parish Administrator! Adrienne is an experienced bookkeeper and office manager. Most recently, she served eight years as the Administrative Manager for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, managing the needs of 70 employees on a daily basis. Now she runs an independent bookkeeping service. Adrienne will work at St. John’s 20 hours a week – Wednesdays (7:45-3:45), Thursdays (7:45-3:45), and Fridays (8:30-12:30). She will help us in three primary areas: communication, administration, and finances/bookkeeping. Adrienne grew up in the Russian Orthodox Church, graduated from Clemson University with a degree in marketing, and moved to Breckenridge from New Jersey 24 years ago. She met her husband Ben, a Colorado native, 21 years ago. (He owns Premiere Roofing.) They have been married for 13 years. Son Cole, 11, was born on February 14; son Alex, 9, was born on October 8. The Stuckeys live in Blue River about 5 minutes from the church. Adrienne enjoys cross country skiing, and downhill skiing, and hiking with their new 5 month old, Australian Shepard/Border Collie mix puppy, Teddy. The whole family plays ice hockey, and enjoys water sports at Lake Powell. Let us hold Adrienne and her family before God in your prayers as she joins the St. John’s community!
Help those suffering from hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, and other natural disasters! Please continue to pray fervently!
