Early Welcome for New Pastor

June 11, 2015

The wheels of progress are turning fast these days in the life of Fairmont!  One notable is that Pastor Liz and her family have moved into the parsonage on Brooks Avenue.  They are ramping up for her first service which will be on July 5th.  Here is a little background on Pastor Liz and her family:
The Reverend Elizabeth Roberts is in her thirteenth year of pastoral ministry in our North Carolina Annual Conference. For the past seven years she served     as the Pastor of Windborne UMC in north Raleigh. Prior to her current appointment, she served as the Associate Pastor at Seaside UMC in Sunset Beach, NC. She is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a BA degree in Philosophy and Religion. She also earned a Master of Divinity degree in 2002 from the Divinity School at Duke University. She is passionate about youth and young adults in regards to the church as well as mission work and travel. Liz is married to Aaron Muscle and together they have two children, Libby and Wesley (and their fur-baby, a beagle named Lily).
We look forward to meeting and greeting the family in the coming days and weeks.  More information will follow as they get acclimated and integrated into the Fairmont Family.
