Who We Are

Church Staff

Brenda Passmore

Administrative Assistant

Brenda Passmore has been our hard-working Administrative Assistant since April 2013. Previously she worked as the Administrative Assistant at Emanuel Lutheran Church and as a Teaching Assistant for the Corning Painted Post School District. When she’s not hard at work preparing church bulletins and newsletters, Brenda keeps busy still trying to parent two grown children Ellen and Joe, enjoying her husband Jim, and driving her mother Elvina and dog Rosie around town. She also loves biking, hiking, camping, reading, and a good yard sale!

Eleanor Perry


Eleanor Perry grew up in Central Pennsylvania and earned two degrees in Music Education at Mansfield University. Much of her time is spent with her private piano students and with her greenhouse business as a grower and seller of flowers and vegetable plants from late winter through early summer.

She still can make time for hobbies. She is an avid reader of all kinds of novels. She is an avid Yankees fan and watches games on TV. She has four children – all successful in their endeavors and ten grandchildren who she’d like to see more.
