  • Kathy Barrett - President

    I have been a member of Resurrection since 1987. During my many years of membership, I have served as an usher; been on the Women of RLC board as coordinating secretary, program chair, and president; served on the board of the School Supply Project and as a Stephen Minister Leader. I have also served on the Congregational Council as a liaison to the then ARK preschool and over the past two years as vice-president and chairman of the Stewardship Committee. A retired elementary school counselor, I am active in the community as a member of the Plano Retired Teachers Association and perform as a puppeteer for the Kids Count Players, a volunteer group of the Collin County Children's Advocacy Center which presents puppet shows throughout Collin County for children in kindergarten through second grade on child abuse awareness. I feel very blessed to have my RLC family!

    I joined Resurrection in 2003 and have enjoyed serving as Council Secretary this year.  I have also served on past Resurrection church councils as an At-Large member and as Treasurer. Outside of my council experiences, I serve as an assisting minister and am a member of the Worship Team. I also participate as an offering counter a few months out of the year. Outside of church, I am a product manager by profession and enjoy travelling, skiing, hiking, and socializing with friends. I am mom to two four-legged babies - kitties, Max and Brooklynn. I look forward to serving another year on the council in the Secretary position and seeing Resurrection thrive in the future!

  • Becky Schuerman Choi - LIAISON for Serve ministries

    I am a relative newbie to Resurrection since joining in November 2017 but didn't waste time finding ways to get involved. I joined Sounds of Joy early but still consider myself a mere ding-a-ling since my handbell skills pale in comparison to others. Behind the scenes, I have helped with the 2018 God's Work, Our Hands Sunday, VBS, Stewardship Team, and occasionally Rally, in addition to serving as an usher. You may also find the Choi family in the kitchen, hosting coffee hour. I was born Lutheran in DeWitt, Nebraska; am a graduate of Kansas State University and the University of Texas-Arlington; and was a bicycle and pedestrian planner before Greta was born. Most recently, I was the office manager of Elim Lutheran Church in lovely Petaluma, California. Since relocating back to Texas, I manage to avoid finding a “real” job by adding more volunteer responsibilities through RLC, the Robinson Middle School PTA, and the Live Green in Plano program. I am married to Howard “Chili Champ” Choi, and my daughter, Greta, enjoys hanging out with her friends in the RLC Confirmation program.

  • Sallie Diamond - Liaison for Ancillary Ministries

    My husband and I moved with our son and daughter to Plano in March of 2000. In May we became involved in Troop 1000 which has been chartered by RLC since the church opened. We began attending church services and became active in various projects and activities, helping wherever we could. I became a committee member, committee chairman, and then charter organization representative of the Boy Scout troop. When Crew 1000 started, I became committee chair of the crew. I was also involved in starting Troop 3000 this past February 2019. At this time, I am the charter organization representative for Troop 1000, Crew 1000, Pack 1225, and Troop 3000. I continue to hold the position of Youth Protection Champion for the Chisholm Trail District of Circle Ten Council and have been training committee chairman. I am a Red Cross instructor, climbing instructor, and have attended and staffed on various Wood Badge leadership courses. Rick and I became members of the church and started helping with the youth groups and confirmation. I have received the Lutheran Servant to Youth medal and the Lutheran Lamb Award. I currently help with Sunday school sixth-eighth grade, confirmation, and RALLY. I had the opportunity to attend confirmation camp this past summer with our youth. In August 2000, I started working for Plano ISD at Brinker Elementary School in the special education department as a para-professional. In 2003 I received my special education teacher certification. I currently teach a structured teach classroom working with a variety of students. Rick and I have decided that Plano will be our permanent home in retirement. I look forward to serving Resurrection and attracting new members to our wonderful congregation.
