Carolyn Lawrence and Robin Lovett Owen
Interim Directors of Youth Ministry
Carolyn Lawrence, Co-Director of Youth Ministries
Carolyn (Care) Lawrence is returning to First Congregational for the 2019-20 program year as Co- Interim Director of Youth Ministries, along with Robin Lovett Owen. She is a student at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where she is completing her final year of academic studies. Originally from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Carolyn has lived in Washington D.C. and Rome before returning to the Midwest for studies. She has a deep love of learning (especially theology!) and traveling both nationally and internationally. Her call to service began early in life and her relationship with God has grown evermore strongly through loving communities that the Spirit provides for God’s people. She is excited to return back to this fantastic community of faith.
