Rev. Mary Beth Mardis-LeCroy has served St. Paul's United Church of Christ since April of 2011. She feels grateful every day to be able to be part of such a warm, vibrant and growing group of people who are committed to loving God and neighbor with everything they've got. Mary Beth grew up mostly in South Carolina. She attended Princeton Theological Seminary, and upon her graduation in 2005, she and her husband, Matt, moved to Des Moines. Neither of them native mid-westerners, Mary Beth and Matt love living in Iowa. They have two children: a daughter, Ellie and a son Wil; and they have two crazy cats: Hildegard and Abelard. Mary Beth enjoys spending time with her family (cats notwithstanding), music (especially folk and bluegrass), walking or jogging, and eating the delicious food that her husband makes. If you have never attended a service at St. Paul's, she hopes you might stop on by sometime, and see for yourself what God is up to at 2nd and Cedar in Madrid.
ALL are welcome.
