In 2008 Valerie Maracich began attending SRC in Manhasset. Since then, she has grown in her faith, developing a deeper relationship with Jesus. After the move to Bethpage this mom of three wonderful children, Aaron (20), Mikelina (17) and Heather (14), has made the Syosset campus her home. When the SRC choir began earlier this year, Valerie was there. Her heart feels free whenever she worships and she feels blessed to share her joy with others through song. Valerie works as a teacher’s assistant and is attending Aldephi’s night school to procure her degree in teaching. You may not know this, but she is both an art and doll collector. Thank you, Valerie, for sharing your joy and talent with us!
Fran Miller and her husband of almost 50 years, Chuck, have been attending SRC since 1998. Her passion for Jesus and love for people overflows into the ministries she’s involved in. As the Manhasset Care Team Coordinator, Fran experiences the joy of partnering with God through visitation and writing notes of encouragement. On Sunday mornings she ministers by welcoming people as a greeter. Whenever Fran sings she feels God’s pleasure which is why she enjoys being a part of the choir as the Lord has used it in ushering His presence. You may not know this but this active couple enjoys ballroom dancing and doing yoga. Their favorite dance? The tango! Fran, thank you for being God’s hands and feet to people in need!
