A Passion for Worship

Our SPL Family has been blessed for decades by the ministry and leadership of Heidi Sack, our Director of Worship & Music, who plans to retire from her service following the end of this year. She has impacted our church family in a big way through her musical talent and passion for the Word and worship, especially in our contemporary services. Generations of vocal and instrumental musicians have grown and flourished while our congregation has also grown and flourished in our own passion for worship as a result. We celebrate all the ways God has used Heidi in our family of faith and in this community, and now we trust Him to connect us with His next ministry leader for this integral position on our team at SPL.
