Welcome LeeAnne!

LeeAnne Steenhoek is our new Christian Education Director!


LeeAnne is delighted to be called to minister to youth and families, as we grow together in our relationship with God. LeeAnne enthusiastically partners with spirited Pastor Amy Hayden and the LCC congregation to share and extend Radical Hospitality and Joy -- within the Congregation, throughout town, and beyond -- making Lyme a beacon of God’s Love and Light for those seeking greater connection with our Creator and one another.


A teacher by trade, LeeAnne holds NH certifications in English and Spanish and has worked with students from preschool to graduate work, primarily grades 5-8 at Amherst Middle school. She did her undergraduate work majoring in Spanish and Secondary Education and Minoring in English at Keene State College and has a Master’s in Spanish and Education from Rivier College. Interdisciplinary work is LeeAnne’s passion, so if you have a talent or skill to share in the areas of music, technology, storytelling, art, science, math, dance, etc. and you want to collaborate for Sunday School or other youth and family programs, please be in touch.


You may have met LeeAnne, her husband Patrick, an Elementary school teacher, and her daughters Caroline and Genevieve during Vacation Bible School.  They’ve come with the Mont Vernon Congregational, UCC Church’s youth chaperoning the teens and supporting activities.  The Steenhoek Family is enthusiastic about worshipping in Lyme periodically, this being Genevieve’s Confirmation year.


LeeAnne has served in a variety of leadership positions at Mont Vernon Congregational Church UCC over the past 18 years, including Christian Education Chair and committee member, Worship Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, Youth Group Leader and Liaison representative for an ordination candidate at Amherst Congregational Church. She grew up in East Granby CT and maintains close ties with East Granby Congregational Church UCC, collaborating for retreats enjoyed by both Mont Vernon and East Granby Church members. Her close ties with church families near and far are a blessing.


Please come say hello and share your talents and ideas for Christian Education and youth and family ministry. LeeAnne is at the church Sundays and at times during the week that will be determined by the needs of the community and the church.
