Welcome Pastor Lane and Jean

Effective July 1, 2024, Prospect extends a warm welcome to our new pastor, Laney Spigener (Pastor Lane), and his wife, Jean. They are residing at the Prospect Parsonage in Siouan Shores.

Congratulations to Pastor Lane and Jean for their first Sunday Service on July 7, 2024! If you were not able to attend, the link to the recorded service is here.

Pastor Lane thanked the church for such a warm and supportive welcome.  He said it felt "like home". We all know that feeling! If you weren't able to make it for his first please plan for another Sunday whenever you can - in person or via Facebook.
