KUMC welcomes new secretary

in Faith/Kaneville by

KANEVILLE—For years, Katee Werrline was a member of Kaneville United Methodist Church in Kaneville, attending services and socializing with parishoners, never knowing that one day, she would be the church secretary.

After her mother received the church’s monthly newsletter, which announced an opening for the secretary position, she forwarded the information over to Katee.

Werrline started supporting staff and church community members on Aug. 20 and has been fervently working with leaders of the church and collaborating with Rev. Avani-Cosset Christian. Also a newcomer to Kaneville United Methodist, Christian and Werrline are an energetic combination to execute new ideas, like an updated and fine-tuned website.

“Working at Kaneville United Methodist Church is a great opportunity for me,” Werrline said. “Not only am I able to see the inner workings of the church and be a support to our community, they have been extremely flexible with my schedule so I can continue my education.”

Werrline this fall will spend time between working at Kaneville United Methodist and attending her second year of classes at Waubonsee Community College. While her physical time at the church has increased, so has the spiritual aspect of her faith walk. Werrline is more excited about her faith in God than ever before as a result of this new position.

“I don’t feel like I am going to work,” she said. “The church is such a different environment, where people are constantly helping others. In fact, I am not only helping the church—they are helping me.”

The presence that Werrline feels mirrors the intent of United Methodist Church founder John Welsey. Today, with 11-million members globally, Werrline joins members at the Kaneville church who believe in an emphasis on Christian living, specifically putting faith and love into action.

Committed to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ, Kaneville United Methodist practices hospitality, sharing, fellowship and serving others. A focus on bringing glory to God by impacting the lives of others and reaching out to the community and the world is the forefront and core beliefs of the church.

For more information about Kaneville United Methodist Church, visit its website at kanevilleumc.org, or call Katee at (630) 557-2353. Sunday school is offered for children at 8:30 a.m., followed by a 9:30 a.m. church service. The church is located at 46W764 Main Street Road, between Harter and Dauberman roads, in Kaneville.
