Plymouth Heights Church of the Nazarene, 25 Arnett Drive, Franklin Furnace, welcomed Rev. and Mrs. Andy Ramey as the church’s new pastoral family on March 11.
Rev. Andy Ramey is an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene and is the new senior pastor of the church. He has been in full-time ministry for almost 14 years. He and his wife, Rachel, have been married for 12 years and are the parents of two children, Drew, 11, and Emilee, 7. Rachel is also a special-needs teacher and plays a large role in the ministry at Plymouth Heights as she assists Rev. Ramey in his work.
“We are so excited to be a part of such a terrific church. We are striving to not simply be a church in Franklin Furnace but THE church of Franklin Furnace, Rev. Ramey said. “We want the people in our community and all around us to know that this is their church.
Rev. Ramey said they have already seen great things happening through the ministries of the church.
“We work with the STAR Community Justice Center, we have a great food pantry ministry with the Neighbor to Neighbor program, and we have excellent youth and teen programs,” Rev. Ramey said. “We have just celebrated the Easter season where our church choir and drama team performed an Easter drama, ‘Bow the Knee’ and we saw 30 people won to the Lord.”
Rev. Ramey concluded, saying, “There are many great things that the Lord has for us as we move forward. In late September 2012, Plymouth Heights Church of the Nazarene will be celebrating its 50th year anniversary. We anticipate many wonderful things to come as we do our best to love God, love people and introduce the world to Christ.”
