Happenings at Lynn Haven
May 5 - 11, 2013
AWANA Trip to Dogwood Acres 2013
AWANA Trip to Dogwood Acres 2013
From Doug Pennington,
Greetings in the name of Jesus. As we prepare for our coming leadership transition, I ask you to be in prayer for both the Pennington and Carter families as well as the Lynn Haven and Mulder churches. I remember how meaningful it was for my family to receive cards and other expressions of greeting and welcome even before we arrived at Lynn Haven. If you would like to do the same for the Carters, their mailing address is:
Craig and Lee Carter (Abby and Zac)
241 Stonegate Trail
Wetumpka, AL 36093-2839
Craig's email address is available by clicking here. Please let me tell Craig that he doesn’t need to respond to every email, so don’t be offended. He has a lot going on pastoring his church without the extra responsibility of having hundreds of emails to write.
The Carter family will be visiting this Thursday night and Friday. Dinner is planned at the church with our SPRC and ELT and their families. Friday will be spent meeting the staff and getting oriented to our two campuses, as well as general touring around the Panama City area.
Craig's wife, Lee, has been a teacher and counselor in high school, middle school, and currently elementary. She will be looking for an opportunity to continue her career in Bay County. Abby will be graduating from high school soon, works at Best Buy and will be looking to start college this fall. Zac is a sophomore in college.
I can say from experience that being a pastor's family is challenging in many ways, but one of the great things about it is that wherever the Lord sends us, we have a ready-made family already in place. Let's show the Carters that God has prepared a special calling for them here at Lynn Haven that includes a loving and welcoming Christian family!
