Kathy Helliesen

New Members Coordinator

Kathy has been a member of First Church for more than 30 years. She and her husband Bob raised their three children in the church, and  consider this their “home.”  “It has been such a blessing to be part of this wonderful, supportive community which has deeply nourished and challenged our family throughout the years.”

Kathy has been the New Member Coordinator for 18 years. “I love meeting people and welcoming them into our community of faith. It is a joy and privilege to hear people's stories, and to accompany them on their journey toward membership at First Church.”

In addition to working with the New Member classes, Kathy enjoys playing tennis, yoga, doing substitute deaf interpreting, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. Kathy and Bob are members of the Decker Fellowship group which has been meeting for almost 30 years.
