  Trudy Eshuis | Secretary |    Email     Trudy Eshuis is the office secretary at Prairie Edge.

She answers to Miss Trudy, Grandma and all of her sisters’ names. While she has served this church in many different areas throughout the years, her passion for service is in being a Storyteller for the Children’s Worship Ministry. She and her husband, Phil have been long-time members of Prairie Edge, and they have 4 adult children and 9 grandchildren. In her spare time she likes baking, cooking, quilting and reading. You can typically reach her in the office on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (and the occasional Monday.)

  Tom & Becky Cook | Custodians |    Email     Tom and Becky keep our facility clean, shiny and in good working order. They serve the church in ways most of us never see. They both have a welcoming spirit and volunteer in many capacities here. Becky is a long-time member of the Outreach Committee and is passionate about serving those in our community. Tom is the official Sunday morning greeter at the front door, and his handshake welcomes adults and children alike. Cleaning the house of the “best Boss in the world,” (as Becky puts it) as well as working full-time at their other jobs doesn’t leave them much time for fun. But when they do have spare time, they love to be outside doing yard work.
