Ann Marie Skoglund-Anderson, Organist/Accompanist

Ann Marie Skoglund-Anderson has been the Organist/Accompanist at Faith-Lilac Way since October 2014. She loves this community’s commitment to service and worship. 

Her first piano teacher was her grandma and she instilled in her not just the foundation for a lifetime of learning keyboard skills but also, a love for music ministry in the church. Ann Marie’s grandma was an organist, accompanist, vocalist and choir director for many years at her church in Chicago, IL and did it with great skill and joy and with a love for people and Jesus.  She is Ann Marie’s role model.

Being a part of leading worship and using music to bring glory and honor to God is a great joy in Ann Marie’s life. She grew up in Japan and in Chicago, and after a brief time in Wisconsin and Florida has made her home in the beautiful state of Minnesota. Her husband, Lane and her enjoy playing piano duets together and spending time with their three children.  Two of those three are in college so their nest is starting to feel a little emptier. She also enjoys good books, beautiful yarn and a great cup of coffee.
