Twenty years ago, Laura VanProyen moved to a new home in Springfield with her husband, Arie and their daughter, Sarah (now married to Brian Peterman, and settled in Chatham). About a year later, they chose Chatham Presbyterian to be their new church home. Over the years Laura has been involved in a variety of programs and activities, but none more rewarding than those in children’s ministry. Since early 2011, Laura has served as the volunteer Director of Children’s Ministry overseeing the Sunday school program and helping with related events throughout the year. A bookkeeper by profession, she works as office manager for two local law firms and clerk for the local water commission.
