We have had 29 new members join our church since the middle of October 2021, and we realize it can be challenging for everyone to get to know them quickly! Beginning in 2022, we are launching a short article about the new members (based on their answers to five questions) at the end of each month. We would also like to suggest that you look at all the new members’ pictures on the New Member Board in the hallway of the main church building, so that you can identify them by name.
Get to know our new members from 2022:

Leith and Adele Singletary

Leith and Adele Singletary joined Friendly Avenue Baptist Church on January 30, 2022. Leith is a native of Greensboro, who retired from a profession in insurance.  His hobbies are reading, walking, and hiking. Adele was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. She lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, until 1958, when she moved to Greensboro. She worked in the legal field. Her hobbies are swimming, walking, hiking, playing games and cooking (someone who has eaten in their home says that she is an outstanding cook, who has received training in preparing food in other countries)!

Their child is a five-pound poodle named Beauregard! Beauregard is very friendly and welcomes visitors to their home, especially if they have food!

Leith and Adele are interested in learning about different areas in the church where help is needed.  Adele began her volunteer work with the Valentine Luncheon recently by helping to decorate, purchasing door prizes, and assisting as needed. They have already gotten involved in the Open Door Sunday School Class.

Walter and LuAnne Anderson

Walter and LuAnne Anderson became members of Friendly Avenue on February 6, 2022. They are both originally from Greensboro. They bought 74 acres of land in Rockingham County and built their dream home there. They lived there for seventeen years before moving back to Greensboro.

Walter is now retired but was the owner and manufacturer of a floor care equipment company that he built from the ground up. LuAnne is in her twelfth year with a local restaurant supply company.

Both enjoy time spent with their children and grandchildren. They have three sons and two daughters-in-law: Carson (Heather), Lee (Mary Lisa), and Owen.

They are open to serving wherever they are needed within the church. They have signed up to assist with the April Egg Drop festivities. They are getting familiar with their new church family by attending the Cornerstone Disciples Sunday School Class and plan to attend a new Equip Class in March with Pastor Daniel. They report that they are very excited that the Lord led them to FABC!
