Lyndsay is passionate about walking alongside families in their discovery of a God who loves unconditionally and helping them learn to worship, pray, and serve together. She is also called to serving marriages, parents, families, and the RPC community.
Lyndsay grew up in the Columbia area of South Carolina and is very proud to be a Carolina girl. She graduated from Presbyterian College with a degree in Christian Education and then headed to Columbia Theological Seminary where she graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2004. During her time in seminary, Lyndsay worked at Peachtree Presbyterian Church with the middle school ministry.
Lyndsay joined the Roswell Presbyterian Church staff in 2005. She is married to Scott and they have two sons, Brandon and Drew, and a puppy named Ziplock. The things she cherishes the most include moments of deep laughter that make her eyes water and her stomach muscles sore, the fact that her boys will still hug her in public, almost any kind of cheese, sharing the table with others as sacrament and holy connection, and the transformative grace of Jesus Christ as she witnesses it in unexpected places.

Have you ever felt caught between two decisions where neither one of them seemed like a good option? This morning we will look at Peter as he wrestles with wanting to do the right thing, but struggles to find the strength to do what he should. The good news is scripture also has a word for us for navigating between a rock and a hard place.

Today we continue our sermon series, Counterfeit Gods, by looking at the idol of food. What a tumultuous relationship we have with food! We love how it makes us feel to eat, but we often hate what the food does to our bodies. We stress eat. We emotionally eat. We restrict our food to control our lives. However, food is often a reason for families and loved ones to come together. Certainly, food is a gift and a curse! This morning let’s look at what God has to say about food and our relationship with it.

Advent points to the coming of Jesus as we remember his arrival to Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, his presence in our hearts every day, and his promise to come again in glory. We at RPC hope to witness to that good news through all our ministries and activities.

At Roswell Presbyterian Church, we believe we are a family of faith united in Jesus Christ to love with our head, heart, and hands. The question we are asking this morning is, what does it look like for the work of ministry to flourish in and through RPC when we are loving with our head?
We think through this question as we continue to study one of Jesus’ most famous teachings, the story of the Samaritan who showed compassion and mercy. We will look at how it specifically teaches us to love God with our mind. How can we approach our faith in a way that values our intellect and does not diminish our ability to think critically? And if we are thinking critically about our faith, how does that impact our ability to love God and love others?

Good morning! Today we conclude our sermon series, Follow Me. We have journeyed through the Gospel of John and focused on the various "I am" statements that Jesus makes to describe himself. The interesting thing about our passage this morning is that while Jesus makes very clear that he is the king, it is not one of the "I am" statements. Jesus does not directly say "I am the King."
Also in our passage this morning, Jesus explains that he is not king in the way we typically think of a king. He continues to insist that his kingdom is not of this world. What does Jesus mean by that anyway? And why wouldn't Jesus just come out and call himself king?
We will think through those things this morning as we study God's Word together!

In worship today we will continue our sermon series examining the various “I Am” statements that Jesus made in the Gospel of John. Today we will look at “I am the light of the world.” What does it mean that Jesus is the light of the world and how does that call us to be at work in our context and in relationship with others around us? How are we called to be light?

In our passage, it appears that Jesus chooses not to acknowledge someone in need. Can that really be true? Do we have a Savior that ignores people who cry out to him? I wonder if, like the woman in the Matthew passage, each of us has had a time in our lives when we are certain that God was choosing to ignore us instead of choosing to help us. If that is the case, what does that mean for us and what does it say about God? How wide is God’s mercy? Is there room for everyone?
