Pam Dolejs

m pamChurch Secretary

Pam started work as our church secretary 20+ years ago as a non-member (although you’ll see her at our congregational events from time to time). She is a member at another local church, and serves at the church and in the community. Pam is thankful for a job she loves, wonderful husband, two awesome adult children, sweet dog, and above all – a loving Heavenly Father! Her last name is tricky for some; but the pronunciation is simple -- Dole-ish.
