The First Church Committee on Staff-Parish Relations (COSPAR) reports with sadness that Dr. Glenn Gregg will be stepping down from his role as the Music Director at First Church. He is making this change in order to prioritize time with his family in Seattle and with extended family on Whidbey Island. Glenn has shared his musical gifts with First Church for the past eight years, and he and his family look forward to continuing to worship with the First Church community even after Glenn’s time on staff comes to an end.
Please join us for a reception in Glenn’s honor after worship on Sunday, January 29.
COSPAR is pleased to announce that Elisabeth Ellis, First Church’s Organist/Accompanist, will take over the Music Director position in February. Elisabeth is a Seattle-based pianist with a focus on opera, ballet and vocal collaborations. In addition to her work at First Church, she is a Company Pianist at the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Elisabeth has a master’s degree in Collaborative Piano.
