Congratulations to Amy Warden, the Next Director of The Brick Church School

We are delighted to announce that Amy Warden has accepted the position of Director of the Brick Church School, effective August 1, 2019. This announcement caps a six-month comprehensive search process that began in April when Lydia Spinelli announced her intention to retire. Amy’s expertise and consistent passion for early childhood education during her five-year tenure as Associate Director, as well as strong support from current and past parents of the Church School and from the faculty, make Amy the ideal next Director. Her knowledge, experience and vision align with the core values of the school and key areas for evolution; hence, she was the enthusiastic and unanimous choice for our next Director.

Important Note Regarding Security from Rev. Kimberly Clayton

The Brick Church is fortunate to be situated in a safe area, surrounded by good neighbors. Additionally, we are not a congregation under particular threat as, unfortunately, many others are, including Jewish and Muslim places of worship. On Oct. 21, before the tragic events in Pittsburgh, a Task Force met to review security procedures at Brick Church. An initial recommendation was to add Security Guard hours to our Sunday mornings. Our wonderful weekday Security Guard, Gavin, began Sunday, Nov. 4. Gavin already knows many church members and School families. If you have not met him, please introduce yourself. Welcome, Gavin!
