Orlene follwed God’s calling on her life to minister to children, youth and families. This was accomplished through 28 years of teaching both in parochial and public schools and 12 years as Minister of Children, Youth, and Families in both Lutheran and Methodist churches. She retired from teaching in May 2020. Although retired from her career in teaching, she believes she is not retired from her calling to love and minister to children, youth and families! Upon retirement from the Texas School System, Orlene moved back to Michigan to be closer to her family and now resides in Frankenmuth.
Orlene enjoys traveling, camping, Christmas, substitute teaching at Frankenmuth Schools and spending time with family and friends. She is delighted when she has opportunity to share the love of Jesus with others. One of her favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:4: “Rejoice in the Lord always! Again, I say, rejoice.”
Heather has been a part of music ministry in churches since she was a child. Throughout college she worked as a choral scholar, and children’s choir director. Heather holds a Bachelors in Music Education from Saginaw Valley State University. Heather is the choir director for Caro Community Schools, and teaches private voice lessons. Before teaching in Caro, she taught music at a residential treatment center for young boys. Heather has performed in many different ways throughout her college years and beyond, but using her voice to worship God is where she feels that she is doing what he has called her to do. Heather has been married to her husband since 2020, and they have a cat, Judson, and puppy, Hank.

Since the start of the pandemic, he began to help his home church (United Missionary Baptist Church) and a couple of other churches transition to virtual worship. He became a social media manager and video operator/editor to help the churches grow virtually.
Marcus has been together with his girlfriend, Kennedy, for almost 5 years and together they have a son, Elijah. He found his passion in photography which he turned into a business. He also loves spending time with his family, gaming, and watching movies in his free time.
