My name is Megan Greise. I have a daughter who is 2 years old and the light of my life. She is smart and always busy. I have a dog, two cats, and a bird. I enjoy being outside, visiting the zoo, hanging out with friends and family, and reading. I am the Director of the Trinity Learning Center. I have worked in child care for 13 years, babysitting for 7 years before that. I have my associates degree in early childhood education and continue to take classes and trainings to enhance my knowledge. I enjoy working with the staff, children and their families to provide a safe and educational place for children to enjoy and parents to trust.
I have been a member of Trinity for 20+ years. Several years ago I began making inspirational videos for use in our worship services and the rest is history as they say. I enjoy creating and searching for ways that media can help spread the Gospel. When not at the church, I’m spending my time with my family and friends, and indulging in my hobbies which include making things, reading, and playing video games.
Throughout my life, I have made a conscious effort to use faith as a compass in guiding me to a location where I can make a positive impact on the community. My religious commitment is an ongoing daily routine that will not falter. As Music Director of the Trinity United Methodist Church Chancel Choir in Ralston, I have the ability to help others sing a joyful noise unto the lord regularly. Being able to identify and hear God speaking has helped funnel and mold me into the individual I am today. There is no “me” without my relationship with God. I am also an instrumentalist in the praise band providing me a chance to help the congregation connect closely with our Lord during service. I enjoy writing sermons introducing and connecting the music to what Pastor Matt Fowler will expand on later in the service. The church uses music as a way of centering in and having that intimate dialogue with God. Maintaining a healthy relationship with God can be complicated and puzzling at times, but with strong faith and conviction we can overcome all obstacles.
Originally from Geneva NE, I grew up in the EUB/United Methodist Church and felt right at home when I found Trinity in Ralston. After retirement, I served meals to junior high students and then delivered meals to seniors for a couple years. When the receptionist position became available, it just seemed a natural fit to serve the church. I have two daughters and a handful of grandchildren who also keep me busy.
My job as the custodian of Trinity is to take care of God’s house. I truly love being the caretaker. I have been a custodian for 13 years and a member of Trinity for 45. I have been involved in many areas of the church; Sunday School Teacher, UMW member, helping in media worship, taking care of the altar, and helping in Children’s Ministry. I am married to Stan and have four children, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. I am truly blessed to be a part of Trinity. My favorite hobby is taking pictures of my family and church events. Photoshop is where I have fun editing them (oh what fun)! Also, I have many other interests that keep me very busy. I love what I do.
