Our Sexton, Roger Haugen

Roger has been our sexton for more than 24 years.  Roger works hard to keep our church in tip-top shape. Roger is more than a custodian; he is a part of the team that helps us engage in God's ministry. Roger is our smiling doorman on Sunday mornings, makes great coffee, and is an all-around assistant when any need arises. We thank God for him and the gifts he shares with us every week!
