    My name is Ross McSherry and I  graduated from Johnson University in 2017. I grew up in eastern Virginia with my family which includes two sisters, one younger and one older.  Along with leading musical worship, I love playing sports. Music and sports are my two favorite activities. I grew up playing baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, and ultimate Frisbee.


    I am incredibly excited to be a part of the ministry at First Christian, and I look forward to getting to know all of you better!

  • Dawn Bugher                                                                          Email

    Dawn works part-time as the church Office Manager and loves that her job allows time for being with family, quilting, gardening, music, and various hands-on projects. Bill, her husband, works as an airplane mechanic and in his off time enjoys woodworking, fishing, and tinkering around the house. They have three children: Aaron, Ashley and Timothy, who have all "flown the coop". On Sundays, you will often find Dawn playing flute and Bill sitting at the sound board making sure she's not too loud.
