Secretary of the Board
Lottie began attending RCCC in February in 2021. She had been looking for a church that believed the Bible is the inspired Word of God and a Church that actually studied the Bible. The welcoming atmosphere of the congregation made it easy to stay. Lottie and Brian have been married for 52 years. The first eleven years of their marriage, Lottie taught Junior High School English and Social Studies in Sheboygan. In 1981 they moved to Wisconsin Rapids where Brian wanted to build and remodel homes. Their two daughters were seven and four at the time. Lottie began substitute teaching in the Nekoosa Middle School. In 1984 she became the School Librarian/Computer Resource person. Lottie prayed every morning on the way to work for guidance. It was a job she truly loved until she retired in 2004. Not quite ready to quit teaching, Lottie continued to actively substitute teach until February of 2017. Praying once more for guidance, Lottie received a phone call 2 hours later with an offer to help on the Development Board for Love INC-SWC. Lottie served for three years as Secretary of that Board and still volunteers for them. Over the years, the McDermott family has grown to include two granddaughters and a grandson plus our son-in-law! Lottie still prays daily for guidance.
Cindy began attending RCCC in 2018. She is currently serving as church treasurer. Her love of numbers and statistics makes this job a joy. She and her husband have been residing in Wisconsin Rapids since 2018 after moving here from northern Illinois. That does not mean the Windy City on Lake Michigan, but a rural town 100 miles away from the big metropolitan area. They have five grown children and three grandchildren. Currently Cindy is employed at Forefront Dermatology. Cindy and her husband enjoy church activities and are involved “any time the doors are open.” They also enjoy hiking, kayaking, camping, along with other outdoor activities. Most Sundays coffee hour includes many baked goods as this is one of Cindy’s favorite ministries…because it includes chocolate.
Loganne Smith serves as the Administrative Assistant at RCCC while she also attends school at Liberty University for Christian Counseling. Her duties at RCCC are quite eclectic—from video editing, to random “techy” questions, to organizing the details of various outreach endeavors. When the church (or school) isn’t throwing another random assignment at her, you will find her reading a good book or taking a walk with her dog.
Children’s Program Coordinator
Clea Peaslee currently serves as RCCC’s Children’s Program Coordinator. She and her husband Elijah started attending in 2020, and felt immediately like they had found a second home. Clea graduated on their wedding day in June 2021 with her Bachelors and currently works for the School District of Nekoosa as a middle school teacher. Her favorite math fact is 6×6=36, her favorite mode of communication is face to face, and her favorite food is usually sushi (except on Tuesdays).
