Music Director

Alan Beyel

I hold a Bachelor and Master of Music degree from the Crane School of Music. I joined the church in the early 1980's and began conducting the choir in 1984. As Music Director, I enjoy finding creative ways to use music to enhance and inspire the worship of our congregation.


Marion Smith

My husband, Charlie, and I have been members of MFPC for about 40 years. We raised our three daughters here in this church.  I have sung in the choir here for as many years and occasionally subbed at the organ for our long-time organist, Vicky Clark.  She was also kind enough to give me a few organ lessons!  I took over as organist about two and a half years ago.  It has been a challenge but one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.  I am learning more every day.  It has been especially therapeutic during the Covid pandemic.  I have loved sacred music my whole life and it is a real privilege to be able to play here in this church.


Colin Arnett

I have been attending the Marcellus First Presbyterian Church for as long as I can remember. All the way from Sunday school to becoming a member to being an employee. Some of my fondest memories are from this church and attending church every Sunday has played a big part in turning me into who I am today. I am incredibly grateful to be able to play piano for the church and especially with the church choir. Working with Alan and the choir has been a tremendous learning experience for me, and has helped me discover how enjoyable accompanying can be. I look forward to all of the memories I have yet to make and things I still have to learn.

Sandy Redzikowski

I grew up attending MFPC until my family moved to South Carolina when I was 10 years old. When I moved back up to Marcellus to work at the Sterling Renaissance Festival, I fell back in love with the area and stayed here with my grandmother after the festival season ended.  I began working at the church with the start of the year 2017, and have learned more than I dreamed I would at the time.  The generosity of this church is inspiring, and I strive to live up to it.
