New Members Joining April 25, 2021

Chapel in the Pines Presbyterian Church
Welcome, Worship and Witness
Please join us as we welcome new members to the community of
Chapel in the Pines on Sunday, April 25, 2021.
Ann and Doug Feicht
Ann and Doug recently relocated from Austin, Texas after both retiring from engineering careers. Faced with the dilemma of grown kids living on opposite coasts (Oregon and New Jersey), Ann and Doug opted for the warmer and less rainy North Carolina, within range of their daughter Sarah and more mid-Atlantic family. They look forward to visiting their son Ben in Portland, when air travel becomes an option again. After discovering Chapel in the Pines through YouTube, they have been worshiping with us in the parking lot and are looking forward to an upgrade to the sanctuary soon. Ann enjoys gardening and music. Doug enjoys introducing science and engineering to at-risk youth in underserved communities.
Doug and Ann are both rowers and have begun to discover kayaking and hiking along the Haw River.
Karen and Brownell Johnston
Lifelong New Yorkers, Karen and Brownell moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2014. They built a home in Fearrington Village, where they both enjoy the wealth of community activities and a caring network of new friends and neighbors. They are delighted to be much closer to their daughters, one in Chapel Hill, and another in Richmond and to their four grandkids, who range in age from 9-21.
They enjoyed being members of University Presbyterian Church for more than five years, but missed the smaller close knit congregational experiences left behind when they moved south from eastern Long Island. Based on the warm welcome they have already received at Chapel in the Pines, despite COVID restrictions, they trust they have found the right church “family” as well as a place for service opportunities to Chatham County.
Karen and Brownell enjoy traveling, entertaining, movies and DPAC, playing social bridge, gardening and time with family.
Cynthia and Henry Schaefer
Sweethearts since college at the University of Oklahoma, Cynthia and Henry Schaefer come to Chapel in the Pines by letter of transfer from Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church in Roanoke, VA. Cynthia and Henry are the proud parents of two daughters, Sarah and Melissa, and now enjoy being grandparents to 6 month old James Lee Walton who is thankfully only 20 minutes from their home in Pittsboro. Both newly retired, Henry as a Pfizer sales manager and Cynthia an elementary school reading specialist, they look forward to learning new things (right now boating and golf), beginning to travel again and getting to know and be involved in worship with Chapel in the Pines.
