Hi, I’m Martha Petty and am excited to become part of this church community.
I grew up in the Congregational Church of Western Springs (a small suburb of Chicago—it was like growing up in Mayberry!)
I moved to Fort Collins 33 years ago and have made this my home. I have two sons, Adam and Kyle, who are both in their 20’s. I love being a teacher so much that I have taught for 35 years. I am currently the media specialist at Harris Bilingual School. I love to quilt, travel, and spend time outdoors.
I just got an electric bike and am having fun biking around town on it with my little dog, Sophie. I look forward to getting to know more of you and becoming part of your church family.



Janalee McGee is a mom to four young-adult children, the youngest starting his sophomore year at CSU. She works for UCHealth and absolutely loves her job! She wakes up thankful every day for all she has been blessed with. It’s her intent to live each day with joy, gratefulness, kindness, and having silly fun with her kids!

David McGee just finished his freshman year in the Honors program at CSU as a Computer Science major, and will be starting his sophomore year in the fall. He enjoys gaming, anime, and watching football. He looks forward to being a part of the church!
