Rev. Larisa Parker

Faith United Methodist Church in Smyrna welcomed the Rev. Larisa Parker as new Pastor beginning June 23.

Rev. Parker served as associate pastor at First Alpharetta UMC since 2007.  Her strengths are in preaching, teaching, and pastoral care.  A summer sermon series—The Journey of Salvation– will explore the travels of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke.

Rev. Parker brings to us her vast experience, talents and gifts in the UnitedMethodistChurch.  She was Pastor of Prospect UMC, MorganCounty, and Associate Pastor of Princeton UMC, Athens, Ga. With all that she has been given, Faith UMC will be blessed.

Rev. Parker is married to Ken Parker and they have two children, James and Susannah.  The Parker family is relocating to the Smyrna area so the family will be more involved in the community they will soon call home.  Rev. Parker along with the congregation extends an invitation to come worship with us at Faith UMC as she guides our summer journey with Jesus.

Christian Education classes begin at 9:45 a.m. and Worship service begins at 11 a.m.  Faith UMC is 4336 King Springs Road, Smyrna, and phone number is 770-435-9722.
