  • Meet the Team | Central Presbyterian Church

    CENTRAL'S STAFF CPC Home Discipleship Donate Connection Page Sermons & Newletters Ministries Search our Site More Scott Bowerman was born and raised in northern New Jersey. While a freshman at Ursinus College, he awakened to faith in Christ, and also met his future wife Susan. After working as a software engineer, Scott was called to ministry and was educated at Princeton Theological Seminary. Scott has served churches in South Carolina and Virginia, and was the founding pastor of New Kirk Presbyterian in Blythewood, S.C. His articles and sermons have been published in Pulpit Digest, Preaching, Net Results and other periodicals. Scott and Susan have three grown children, and though he looks far too young, Scott is the proud grandfather of foure. Susan is a foreign language teacher who has taught both French and Spanish at the high school and middle school levels. Scott is an avid cyclist, a mediocre golfer and obsessed with making great pizza. After 26 years of ministry in the South, Scott is glad to be back on the northern side of the Mason-Dixon line, even if just barely. SCOTT BOWERMAN Pastor - contact Sandy Wilson joined the staff at Central in January 2008. She and her husband, Gene, moved to Chambersburg from Geneseo, Illinois, where Gene pastored a church. As a pastor’s wife Sandy has been deeply involved with church ministry. She has a heart for children and a desire to see them develop a life-long personal relationship with Jesus. Helping children apply Biblical truths in every day life is very important to her. Gene and Sandy have two grown sons, two beautiful daughters-in-law, two grandsons and four granddaughters. Spending time with family & friends, taking road trips, exploring outdoors, baking chocolate delights and finding joy in the journey of life are the things she likes best! SANDY WILSON Kids' Ministry Director - contact ANDREA HADIK Andrea Hadik was born in Chambersburg, PA, almost 27 years ago. She grew up in Mercersburg, then moved 2 hours away to a small Christian college at the age of 17. After 2 1/2 years of studying music education, she began to feel lost and an opportunity came up for her to move to Fairbanks, AK, to be a teacher's aid. She spent 6 of the best years of her life there teaching middle school and working with inner-city church kids/youth ministry. This was a life changing experience that has shaped her view of how to reach out to young people through relationships with the intent of leading to the opportunity to show Jesus' life and love to them. While in Alaska, Andrea met and married her husband of three years, Joshua Hadik, and had their daughter, Kamea. They are her first passion and she can't imagine life without them. Last spring, Andrea & Josh felt the call to move back to PA. Since moving back, Andrea worked as a substitute teacher at James Buchanan Middle School & finished her MBA. Andrea likes a challenge and enjoys staying busy. When she's not working, you can find her doing one of many things: chasing her 2 year old, reading, playing volleyball, ultimate frisbee, mountain biking, or watching favorite tv shows. Andrea is so excited about the opportunity to work at Central. She has been praying for an opportunity to open up that she will feel deeply passionate about and she knows this is it. Youth Director - contact Erin was raised in Newark, DE alongside a family of music lovers! As a child, she spent most of her time singing, dancing, playing piano, making silly videos with her siblings and friends, playing with her dogs, and spending summer days in the neighborhood pool! Erin graduated Summa Cum Laude from Shenandoah Conservatory with a BFA in Musical Theatre in Spring 2009. Beginning a month after graduation, she performed for a living in numerous regional theatres throughout the United States. In late winter 2011, Erin received God's call into ministry; after fighting it for a while, she finally accepted His intervention and began applying for church jobs. Central has been the answer to the prayer Erin never knew she had! She loves working with the community here, studying God's word, watching Him work in beautiful ways, and worshipping with such a wonderful church family. In Erin's free time, she continues to perform, write music, travel, instruct worship cardio, volunteer, and spend time with her wonderful husband, sons, family, friends, and dogs. ERIN ADAMS Worship & Communications Director - contact HELEN WINGERT Helen S. Wingert was born and raised in the Chambersburg/Marion area. While still in college she began her “church organ career” when she was called to her first church organ job at Fayetteville Lutheran Church, fulfilling a dream to serve Christ and His Church through music. She continued this pursuit as Church Organist at Greencastle Evangelical Lutheran Church until she met and married her husband, John Wingert, also a Church Organist at the Church of the Brethren in Chambersburg where they both shared that position for many years before Helen became Organist at Central Presbyterian in Chambersburg. Fifty some years later, Helen is still actively involved in Church organ music and John's legacy of fine-organ-worship lives on. Helen was a graduate from Shippensburg University and taught elementary school for many years in the Greencastle Antrim School District. John was a Medical Technologist having graduated from Juniata College. Helen is now retired from her "other job" and is living in Marion with her “family of eight cats”, all with unique stories of their own. Helen enjoys photography and gardening. Organist - contact Alexis and her husband have a beautiful, 4 acre home in New Franklin. She has a great fondness for animals and worked for a local animal hospital for 20 years. Since then, she had the pleasure to work with Dr. Paul Klink at Summit Weight Management. She feels truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with Pastor Scott Bowerman and will enjoy getting to know the church members as well. ALEXIS HELMAN Administrative Assistant - contact Beth Jaczun grew up in Bucks County Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She began her career as an auditor before staying home to raise her two kids, Christopher and Sarah. She and her husband Steve lived in Maryland for 29 years before relocating to Franklin County in 2016. Beth was an active volunteer at her former church in Clarksville, MD which led to her joining their staff as the Children’s and Youth Ministries Director. She served there for 8 years and loved being a part of young people’s spiritual journey. Beth enjoys spending time with her family, exploring new places, reading, playing games and laughing. BETH JACZUN Finance Administrator - contact SHELLEY MARANGONI Shelley Marangoni grew up outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a child, she always made her friends play school on her front porch so she could be the teacher! She pursued that dream at the University of Pittsburgh and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature and a Masters of Arts in Teaching. She started her formal teaching career in Winchester, VA teaching first grade. Since then, she has held various positions all with the focus of being an advocate for children. For the last thirteen years she has worked at PlaySchool Central as the Preschool teacher and Lead Teacher for the program. The program is unique in that it believes that all children learn best through play-based education. Shelley joins the Staff of Central as PlaySchool Central’s Director where she will continue to advocate for all children to have the best early childhood experience possible. Shelley has been a member of Central for the last twenty-two years and loves to combine her love of Jesus with her professional career of teaching. Shelley and her husband Don have been married twenty-six years and have been blessed with two children Alydia and Dominic. Shelley enjoys spending her time with family, camping, and scrapbooking. Director of PlaySchool Central (MDO) - contact JUDY YOUNG Volunteer Coordinator - contact A native Pennsylvanian, Judy came to Chambersburg in 1959 to attend Wilson College, where she met her husband, Richard. Following graduation in 1963 Judy began teaching at Grandview Elementary School in Greenvillage PA, and received her M.Ed. degree from Shippensburg U in 1967. She retired from a most rewarding 45-year teaching/school librarian career in 2008. Judy and Dick lived away from Chambersburg 1972-2012, returning “Home” to Central Presbyterian, Wilson, family and friends after 40 years. Now happy residents of Penn National, Judy declares that yes, you can go back home again! Her list of activities includes being a Totem Pole Playhouse board member, a Central Presbyterian ordained Elder, and a Grove Family Library member. A proud Wilson College Alumna, she is on the Board of Trustee, is a member of the college’s Magazine Advisory Board, and lends supports to the Wilson College choir and a Capella group, “The Diversitones,” a hangover from when she was a Wilson “Ten Tone” in the 60’s. Her passion for theater and music have remained strong; she and Dick are loyal season subscribers to TPP, returning numerous times during those 40 years away, to attend TP productions with family and friends, keeping up a tradition that goes back to the days of the Stapleton-Putch dynasty. And saving the best for last, they are the parents of 2 sons and grandparents of three great kids! Scott is married to Susan, who he met at Millsaps College while majoring in sociology. He has two teenage daughters, Becca and Gail and some pets too. Scott enjoys cooking, camping, and canoeing in his free time.

  • Contemporary Worship Ministry | Central Presbyterian Church

    CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MINISTRY PRAISE BAND We have a small group of musicians committed to using their gifts for serving the Lord! The band plays a variety of Christian music genres including contemporary christian rock, pop, folk, bluegrass, gospel, and more. Occasionally, we worship in spanish in order to celebrate God in representation of our whole neighborhood community! If you are interested in joining the band, contact Erin Adams! Back to Ministries DANCE TEAM Did you know??? The first recorded occurrence of worship dance is in Exodus 15:20 ~ "Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dancing." After this, the Bible mentions dance about 20 times! For the dance ministry team at Central, our goal is to celebrate what the Lord has done for us through the art of dancing. We strive to draw ourselves and others closer to God through our movements and by creating meaningful and selfless moments of pure worship and surrender to our Messiah. When you can no longer talk, sing. When you can no longer sing, dance. Dance team meets occasionally when necessary for the service. All are welcome to join us! Back to Ministries TECH TEAM DRAMA TEAM Many plots, many characters, many themes, but one purpose: TO FURTHER GOD'S KINGDOM. The drama team at Central Presbyterian is committed to creating skits, presentations, and experiences that glorify the Lord. We have no interest in making ourselves look good, but instead, we desire to reveal Christ's faithfulness through different scenarios. Some of what we do is comical, some is very intense, but it is always authentic. Drama team meets occasionally when necessary for the service. Back to Ministries God is good in providing committed sound and slideshow technicians who help our contemporary worship service to function! If you are interested in being trained, contact Erin Adams.
