WELCOME TO THE APC FAMILY

This Sunday we will welcome a new member to Anchorage Presbyterian, Florence Lee. Learn more about her below: 

Florence Lee traces her connections to Anchorage Presbyterian back to 1940, the year her family moved into a house designed and built by her father at the corner of Owl Creek Lane and Old Harrods Creek Road and named Beechgate. The Kaiser family were active members of APC from 1940-1964, and as Florence Lee returns now to her childhood church, she brings with her fond memories of Rev. Edgar Houghton (APC pastor from 1929-1964 whose portrait hangs in our church library), historic church bulletins, and garden party/style show (annual church fundraiser hosted by her parents) programs to share.

Florence Lee’s niece, Anne Kaiser Harryman, and her husband John look forward to hosting a “Coffee and Tea with Aunt Florence Lee” hour in the library later this summer or fall to give current members and friends an opportunity to enjoy her first-hand stories and photos of APC life in the 40’s, 50’s, and early 60’s.

 

After spending many years in the Cherokee Triangle area of the Highlands, Florence Lee currently lives in St. Matthews where she enjoys time with her local family, adult children Will Crawford and wife Rosalind,  Loren Crawford,  and grandchildren Wyatt, Flynn, and Jessamine, as well as many devoted nieces and nephews, on a regular basis.  She also travels frequently to St. Petersburg, FL, to spend time with her youngest daughter Dr. Peggy Crawford, son-in-law Dr. Josh Rovin, and grandchildren Olivia and Asher.  She looks forward to getting to know more of our current APC members as she comes back “home” to our church community now by letter of transfer from another local congregation.  Just don’t call her to chat during a U of L football or basketball game; she is a HUGE Cards fan and will be focused on the game!

 Welcome back to Anchorage Presbyterian, Florence Lee Wescott.

BIBLETIMES MARKETPLACE REGISTRATION

Don't forget to register your child for a week of fun, prayer, and learning at Bibletimes Marketplace. We need volunteers too! This year it will be at Epiphany Catholic Church July 11-15, in partnership with Anchorage Presbyterian and St. Luke's Episcopal. Children (preschoolers - 5th grade) learn what life was like in biblical times by dwelling in tents with tribe families, participating in craft-making in the marketplace, learning songs and dances, and having scripture stories come to life through storytelling. Youth are encouraged to volunteer as well!
