Music Leadership-

Ms. Ivona Schacker began her role as Music Director at Colonial Heights in the Spring of 2007.   A native Oregonian, coming back to this area after living 42 years in the San Francisco Bay area, Ivona was the organist and choir director at Calvary United Methodist Church in San Jose and the accompanist at St. Williamís Catholic Church in Los Altos .  Ivona also taught music and math in Elementary and Jr. High Schools in Santa Clara & Campbell School  Districts.   We are thrilled to welcome her in music leadership and have already been blessed by her warmth and caring, fine musicianship and artistry.  A fine collaborator, Ivona welcomes musicians of every age, voice, and instrument to share in the music ministry at CHPC.

Nursery Care & Education- Each week Our Children's Ministry Team greets our young people ages birth to 8 in the narthex, inviting them to be a part of our community in a very special way.  After the Time of Wonder & Blessing the Children with Song, the children explore a range of activities that promote growing in faith, and together they all share a snack.  Congregation members & firends assist each week in providing this safe and healthy time just for young ones.

PUN Parish Nurses-

Judy Hubbard, R.N. was commissioned in February of 2007 by the Presbyterian Urban Network (PUN) to serve as parish nurse for the small urban congregations that make up the network.  Judy assists our Board of Deacons in their work of encouraging the congregation to witness, compassion, and service.  This parish nurse ministry focuses on ministries of healing and wholeness within the church, and on reaching out to the surrounding community.  Judy keeps a regular office hours at CHPC.  Bulletin Boards upstairs and in the social hall have educational information about wellness activities and health care resources to address our well-being in body, mind, and spirit. In 2014 Chris Hill has joined the Parish Nurse team with her focus being on Health Education.


Chris Hill, R.N. is our new Parish Nurse as of fall of 2013. She will be job sharing with Judy in a variety of ways. For now, Judy will continue to run the clinics at the 4 PUN churches and Chris will work with her to learn that aspect of the job. This will enable Judy to have a reliable substitute during vacations. Chris loves to teach and she will bring a new energy and skill to our outreach to PUN parishioners and neighbors. She is a trained Parish Nurse and has held a wide variety of nursing jobs involving training caregivers, working with seniors and teaching in areas of nursing education. The two of us will be visiting your congregations on future Sunday mornings, so I hope that you will give a warm welcome to Chris. Chris is currently offering both First Aid and CPR classes at the church or for organizations related to our ministries.  She is also offering weekly Tai Chi classes on site that are particularly focused on simple and effective ways to enhance fall prevention.
