We are broadcasting our Sunday Worship Service on Facebook live. We are doing some upgrades to our hardware and software at the Church to improve on the quality of the broadcast. Go to our Facebook page to watch our previous broadcasts, and join us online, if you cannot join us in person!
We are planning a Yard Sale to be held at some point in Spring or early Summer. Stay tuned for the upcoming date!
Rev. Elizabeth J. Stow, better known as “Betsy,” grew up in Suffolk, Virginia and did her undergraduate work at Wingate College in North Carolina, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. She went on for graduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, earning there a Master of Arts in Historical Musicology and then, while working for the University’s medical ethics education network, a Master of Library and Information Sciences.
Betsy joined Live Oak Public Libraries, of Savannah, Georgia, in May of 2004, serving first as a Children’s Librarian, and then as a Public Services Coordinator (regional manager). While still working for the library, she became the pianist and choir director for Allenhurst Presbyterian Church in 2013. It was there that Betsy began to sense a call to ministry, and she entered Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia in August of 2015.
After completing her Master of Divinity degree in May of 2018, Betsy was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on August 5, 2018. She completed her Chaplain Residency in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and has served as a hospital chaplain, a hospice chaplain, a retirement community chaplain, and a supply pastor.
Betsy currently serves as the pastor of Woodstock Presbyterian Church, in Woodstock, Georgia, and as the Assistant Director of Public Services for the John Bulow Campbell Library of Columbia Theological Seminary, in Decatur, Georgia.
Betsy enjoys walking in the woods, especially hiking to waterfalls. She gets lost occasionally but takes it in stride—after all, it’s part of the adventure! She also enjoys crocheting, cross-stitching, making music, and reading. Betsy is the proud momma of a sweet and sassy cat named Luna.
A message from our new Pastor is coming soon!
