Winning the Favorite Pastor Title
The Brazosport Facts, the local newspaper serving Angleton, Danbury, Lake Jackson, Clute, Freeport and some smaller towns took a poll requesting readers to vote for the local area favorites, including: pastor (church), restaurant, hairdresser, auto mechanic, doctor, dentist, dry cleaner, bank, etc. When the original ballots were tallied, Dr. Lynn Settlemyre of First UMC, Lake Jackson was the winner.
Church secretary Kelly Colosimo says, "There's been a lot of positive hype about a female pastor at the church and within the community. She's brought many people back to our church -- which has been very nice. We all agree she's a breath of fresh air and well received here!"
Congratulations to First UMC, Lake Jackson and Rev. Lynne for being recognized for service and leadership by the community in this way!
