Mary Loring

I am passionate about connecting people to God and one another.  God has called me for such a time and place as this. Read the story of Esther in the Bible and you'll understand what I mean.  To read more, click here.


Director of Spiritual Formation

Jill Sestok

From birth to the final ascension, I focus on the available spiritual pathway offered through the church.  God is calling me in my position to be of service in new and creative ways to share the light of Christ, especially with those who are struggling and have yet to find a church "home".  I am very excited to be working at Belleville First and within this great community.  As I pursue the Deacon track through the Michigan Area of the United Methodist Church I am so pleased to have found a faith community where there is much tradition, a good volunteer base, and great potential for growth.

Church Treasurer

Susan Featheringill

My role as treasurer is to record, disburse and report funds for the church to meet budget guidelines. Our budgets are prepared to support the mission and ministry of our church.  God called me to this position to use my finance degree and over 30 years of accounting experience for His Glory.


Director of Creative Arts

Michael Gross

The arts in worship reflect God's creative spirit. For many of us, God seems removed and distant. As God created the universe, God's creative force lives today. God can be seen in works of art, just as in nature. God's gift of music takes us to a place where we can feel lyrics, in melodies, and harmony. Creating and using the arts to help people recognize Jesus Christ isn't an historical figure, and God's spirit is in every moment of every day is one of my great joys
