Paul previously completed two tours of duty as Treasurer of Cross of Life and Tammy was on Council as well.
Paul and Tammy love to travel and are focusing on the national parks, having just recently visited the Tetons and Yellowstone Park.

Jana has been serving as a recording secretary on Church Council since 2015. Jana, along with Scott, her husband and Kya, her daughter (16) visited the Cross of Life Campus many times over the years when visiting family. When they moved to the area, they continued to visit and found comfort at Unity Lutheran Church where they became members.
Jana was involved with teaching Sunday School, Sunday School Coordinator, Advent Fest, Confirmation Class, and Worship Coordinator when Kya went through the wonderful education program. She can be seen “behind the scenes” lending a hand in worship and is thankful for the great opportunities our faith community offers.
When not working an “IT schedule” as a Business/Systems Analyst, Jana devotes much time to the Booster Club for the Kya's sports team. She enjoys spending time with family, meeting new people, visiting novel places, spending as much time as she can outside in the summer months and working on projects.
