Kelly Bottcher
Coordinator of Adult Discipleship
I am a seeker, a storyteller and a serial optimist I love the joy of a crowded table, belly laughs, digging in the dirt, HGTV, holding hands, big hugs, wet dog noses, anything artsy and the sound of little feet running in my house. I believe in the extravagant grace of the Father, the transforming love of the Son and the life-changing power of the Holy. Spirit. I also believe “ He left the 99 to rescue me."
