Rev. Stephanie Woods, Pastor

I am so excited to get to know all of you and for us to begin doing ministry together! I am an alumna of Ashland University and Duke Divinity School and am almost finished with my PhD dissertation at Boston University. I have been married for 9 years to my husband David, who is a high school math teacher at Crestline High School. We have two cats, Baby and Smokey Joe. One of them will be happy to greet you if you visit the parsonage, and the other will run and hide. In our free time we enjoy playing board games, drinking good coffee, going for walks, and planning prom for David’s students. I also enjoy reading, playing flute and mountain dulcimer, running, knitting, and sewing.

Estella (Kay) Ringley, Organist/Pianist  

My background is in the Moravian church.  (The Moravian Church is much like the Lutheran Church. In fact, a few years ago, the Moravians and Lutherans were united in the Midwest.)
When I was a teenager, I played the piano for Sunday School classes and took lessons to become an organist.  I got my Bachelor’s Degree and taught in the Massillon City schools; then went on for my Master’s Degree and graduate work at Ohio State University.  I taught in Southeast schools.  My degrees were not in music, but I have continued to study on the organ. 

I am married to Lloyd Ringley, Sr.  (My husband has music degrees and was a Band Director in the Wooster City Schools. He provides feedback in my music career.)

When my husband and I retired from public education, we moved to Florida.  We lived there 20 years and I played the organ for The Salvation Army and the Congregational Church.  I like to be involved in the churches that I attend and my membership is with the Congregation Church in Citrus Springs, Florida. 

I am looking forward to being your organist. 

C. F. Crum, Choir Coach

We are so pleased to have Crum as our Choir Coach. He is retired from the education field; more specifically he was a band director. He and wife, Jennifer moved to the area and live on a 10-acre homestead with animals and gardens. Other hobbies include bike riding; they have spent many hours riding the bike trails in Ohio. We are pleased they have made St. Peter their church home.

If your are interested in having fun and learning music in a relaxed setting join us. Contact Pastor Stephanie or Coach Crum with questions.  All are welcome!
