Marsha Scheusner - Interim Director of Music

SCHEUSNER, Marsha.jpg

I am excited to join St. Andrew Lutheran Church as the Interim Director of Music.  

My music ministry started as a teenager as a singer in the adult choir and very quickly at the organ.  My older sister was the organist, and when she went away to college, it was my turn to take a hand at it.  I continued playing the organ while pursuing a degree in music education with a vocal major.  After the birth of two children, a few years of teaching and serving as a church musician, I was drawn to the University of Tennessee and Scarritt Graduate School to do more study in organ and choral conducting.  My most recent experience was a call to First Presbyterian church in Columbia, Tennessee to serve as the fulltime Director of Music and Organist.

The church community is all about us being together.  The communion of saints, the communion sacrament we share, even the word liturgy means "of the people."  All direct us to share our gifts, talents, and love with one another.  And did not Jesus ask us to nurture and care for all?  I am looking forward to hearing your faith stories as we walk our Christian journey together in community.
