Peter Jonas - Pastor - E-mail:

Pastor Peter Jonas came to Arcadia from Cross Plains, Wis.

Suzy Tweet - Music Director

Suzy has begun her duties as Sunday morning pianist/organist/accompanist and choir director. She brings lots of energy and sparkle to rehearsals.

Suzy and her husband Mark live in Galesville with their twin sons Gavin and Lars. Suzy works part time as an accountant for The Insurance Center in Onalaska. Mark is a paramedic. Gavin and Lars have kept their parents busy for the last few years, but as the boys grow, Suzy has been finding more time again for her love of music. Recently, Suzy has shared her church music skills with Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in La Crescent and Zion Lutheran Church in Galesville. Suzy said, "I am very excited about this job here at Christ Lutheran as it gives me a chance to work with your musical groups." After praise band, bells. and choir rehearsals last Wednesday night, Suzy asked, "Where did this congregation get all these great musicians? The kids were great. Praise band is such a fun group to work with."

Suzy earned her degree in accounting at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Her minor was music. During these college years Suzy studied organ under Bill Kuhlman at Luther. Bill was our organ consultant when we purchased our Casavant back in 1981. Late this summer, Suzy just happened to run into Bill and he suggested that she might look into playing in Arcadia because they have a very nice organ up there." Suzy contacted us just at the right time. We are so grateful to Bill Kuhlman-again.

The Tweet family enjoys camping and hiking together when their busy schedules allow. Suzy also enjoys sewing and cooking. Accountant, musician, wife, and mother will keep her busy, but we're confident that Suzy has the energy level to excel in everything she does.
