Main | Church Secretary: Carol Watson »

Pastor: Fran Lane-Lawrence

Having served for several years as Executive Director for a non-profit Presbyterian community center, Pastor Fran has a heart for community ministry and mission beyond the walls of the church.  “We live in times when people aren’t coming to the church.  The church has to go to the people if we are to give witness to Christ.”  She believes serving God is about hearing God’s Word and having the courage to go into the world act upon that Word.

Pastor Fran, a native of Kentucky, comes to Niles with her husband, David Lawrence, also an ordained minister in the PCUSA and her youngest son, Ross.  She has four older children; Phillip, Jonathan, Donna, and Sallie.  She is grateful to God for the opportunity to serve Christ’s church and is pleased to be part of the ministry of First Presbyterian Church.  “It is a wonderful community of faith, rich with tradition, full of new ideas for the future and always ready to be transformed by God to serve God’s people."
