If you don’t know Tom and Amy, then you obviously have not been attending church, because they are there at every turn, helping with so many things since Tom joined in 1985 (transferring from Lutheran Church of the Master, Bedford), and Amy in 1987 (transferring from her family’s Methodist Church in East Palestine OH, outside of Youngstown).
Tom grew up in Bedford, graduating from Bedford High School before going on to Ohio State and Cleveland State. He is employed by an accounting firm in Beachwood, as their Network Administrator (I.T. guy). Amy graduated from East Palestine H.S., Kent State, and Cleveland State, and works as I.T. manager in the banking industry. They met through a mutual friend, and married September 12, 1987 at Centenary United Methodist Church in East Palestine.
Many of you will also remember Kyle & Brooke, who were baptized and confirmed and grew weekly at Advent. Kyle is now married to Rachael and proud dad to Adelynn (Addie), and lives in Indianapolis, as both work for CRU there. Brooke now lives in Ft. Myers FL as a probation officer for the state.
At Advent, the Fadeleys have both served on Council and many committees (Amy is a past president and still on the Spiritual Growth board, Tom on call committees and Word & Sacrament), and they have built many a set and participated as leaders for VBS. Tom is also a vital member of choir and a key technical whiz for Pastor Jim. Amy is a Board member for Hands, Hearts, and Homes Outreach, which grew out of our furniture ministry a few years ago. During our Covid distancing, they have been gracious virtual hosts of the coffee group on Tuesday evenings. How they can have any spare time is a mystery, but when they do, Tom loves movies and aviation, and Amy crafts and interior design.
There's a place for YOU here, we do better together!
