Val Pudlo |  Worship Leader  |  [email protected]

Val Pudlo has been a member of this local body of believers since 1969 and it is right here that she developed her love of music and, in particular, the Lord’s music. With fond memories of the Cherubic Choir, Jr. Choir and Senior Choir, where her musical abilities were encouraged and developed by those that came before, Val hopes to encourage the future generations to praise and worship through God’s gift of music!

As worship leader she feels the most important part of worship is found in Romans 12:1:

. . . offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual act of worship.

Val and her husband Van have been married for 24 years and their family includes 3 grown children and their spouses, 8 grandchildren, and Lucy (the dog) and Desi (the cat).  Val also works professionaly as a Realtor with Merrion and Associates in Michigan City.

Val plays guitar and keyboard, as does her husband Van, as well as plans the worship service for Sunday mornings and special events. Val also writes skits and readings to be used in the worship service. If you have an interest in any of these areas or would like to sing or play a musical instrument with the praise teams please let Val know by e-mailing her.
