Marty Rouse

Marty has been a member of First Church for 48 years and has held various positions within the church. Currently, she is a Stephen Minister, an usher, funeral coordinator, co-facilitator of the caregivers group, a member of the United Methodist Women, and helps set up communion for our Wednesday services.

As the funeral coordinator she confers with the pastor and prepares the church for the service, as well as the Jones Parlor (or the Music Room) for the family. During the service she oversees handing out the programs, the guestbook, and assisting the funeral home attendants, if needed. Her goal is to support the family of the deceased and make all guests feel welcome.
