|Hello, First Congregational UCC
in South Haven!
We are so happy to be joining your community and working as Co-Music Directors. Our goal is to choose music which supports Pastor Jeffrey and Mike’s themes and messages for Sunday Worship. We also hope that the music inspires you and makes you feel good. We are excited to work with all of you and hopefully encourage you to bring your musical talents into Sunday worship as well.
Lisa is originally from Oregon and Diane is from Wisconsin, but we have lived in Tucson, AZ for the last 30 years. We have been Music Directors at St. Francis In the Foothills in Tucson UMC for the last 28 years. We also worked at The Good Shepherd UCC in Sahuarita, AZ for the last 6 years. We have been fortunate to have traveled the world, performing at Jazz & Blues Festivals and venues in Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
After living in the Sonoran Desert for almost 3 decades, we are so happy to be making our new home in Michigan. We are even looking forward to the snow…well, only if Lisa shovels! We can’t wait to get to know all of you!
Much love, Diane & Lisa Van Deurzen-Otey
