Muriel Lush

Muriel LushMuriel Lush became director of Faith Books Plus in July 2009. Since her early years when she read every book in the Epping school library, through High School in Meaford and McMaster University, Muriel has always loved books. Later she taught at OSCVI and sold World Book Encyclopaedia during her years at home with her children. It was a perfect match when she was asked to be the co-ordinator in 1988 of the new Grey Presbytery Resource Centre located in our church basement. When Central Westside took over the resource centre, Muriel became director of the new Faith Books Plus. She continues to choose books and other interesting resources you will love to use.

Tongo

TongoSay hello to Tongo, our Director of
Greetings. For the first year of his life he trained as a dog guide with the Wilkie family. Too timid for service life, he returned to live with Pat and Jennifer and so began his "career" as our D.O.G. He is security for the church office and enjoys being spoiled by church members and visitors. Tongo is the only one allowed to sleep through David's sermon!
