Special Award:

Kathryn Bachinger, BSN, RN:  Daughter of Jerry and Debbie Groves, Kathryn Bachinger graduated from Youngstown State University with her BSN, and then started her nursing career working at Select Specialty.  She then transitioned to work in home care and hospice.  In 2011, Kathryn joined Cleveland Clinic on the J61 cardiovascular surgical step-down unit, later transitioning into the cardiovascular and thoracic operation room.  Almost two years ago, she began working at Twinsburg Family Health & Surgery Center in family medicine, where shortly after she became the family medicine team lead.  This position has given her the opportunity to participate in many accountable care organization (ACO) quality initiatives.  She has also been involved in improving patient satisfaction, patient education, and process improvement efforts for nurse visits.  Fittingly, ‘Family Medicine’ is the name of the department, as Kathryn explains, “Our patients are taken care of like they are family, and patients always come first.   We strive to do the best we can to ensure that all patient needs are being met.  The caregivers I work with – from medical assistants, physicians, certified nurse practitioners, and nurses to administration – are truly family and it makes the environment within the workplace pleasant and enjoyable.”  Kathryn attributes her drive to her parents.  They have always “taught me to work hard and achieve my goals”.  She has carried this with her during schooling and now in her career.  She would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their continual love and support and for setting the expectation for a strong work ethic.  Kathryn strives to share the core values her parents taught her with her husband, Erik, and their son, Owen, who, at 2 years old, is the joy of their lives and keeps them both busy.  Together they enjoy picnics, bonfires, and cookouts.  Kathryn also enjoys reading and relaxation.


SPRING FLING was a huge success!  Thank you to everyone who participated in any way – donating items to sell, setting up for the sale, pricing items, working at the event, cleaning up after the event, and purchasing items at the event.  Thank you to all of the ladies who donated baked goods.  The event generated $2,100.00 that will go to the Anniversary Committee and toward the purchase of window treatments in Cassel Hall.  We appreciate your support!    Diana Bauman


Thursday, June 22, will be the next Red Cross blood drawing in Cassel Hall.  Volunteers are needed to register donors and to help with the snack table.  Donors appreciate a smiling face and a little conversation while they wait.  The volunteer schedule is flexible.  Contact Bonnie Thompson.

Donations are always warmly welcomed, and with your continued support, we will be able to sustain this valuable ministry to young families.


Part of the Social Committee is Grief Ministry. Joyce Osborn is spearheading this ministry with Pr. Winters’ and God’s guidance and help.  When a loved one dies, Joyce sends a set of four books called “Journeying through Grief” throughout the first year. Each book describes the issues and feelings that a person tends to encounter at various points of grief and the books offer suggestions on handling them.  If Pastor Winters or Joyce can be of any help or if you have any questions during a time of grief, please contact either of them.


In the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), churches and clergy can no longer make written or oral public announcements of health information regarding our members.  Thus, unless specifically requested by a member to share other information, we are only able to indicate where a person is hospitalized or that they have been discharged.
