Reverend Andy Casto-Waters, Pastor
Join us every Sunday at 10 am
It is a real description of this church family. When you walk through the doors, you will be immediately welcomed. Our members come from many different places and backgrounds.
Some are lifelong Presbyterians, while others come from different denominations or no church background at all. The church draws from a wide geographic area: Englewood, Rotonda West, Venice, Cape Haze, West Villages, and beyond! Some live here year-round, while others are seasonal. But we all are united as one family of faith.
Come join us and experience COMMUNITY!
Our worship services are at 10am every Sunday morning. We would love to have you join us!
Linda grew up in Auburn, Maine. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Organ/Church Music at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida and her Master of Church Music degree from Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. She continued with pre-doctoral work for a year while at Southern Seminary. After spending a summer in the UK, she holds a certificate in choral studies from Cambridge University. For twenty-six years, Linda served as an Associate Minister in three American Baptist churches- in Iowa, New York and Connecticut. She also taught private piano and organ students during those years. Wanting to experience a career in a “corporate America” she took a position with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in Groton/New London, CT as an Executive Associate In Clinical Development. At the same time, she served as Organist/Choir Director in Noank, CT. After nine years at Pfizer, she decided to return to full-time music, teaching Middle School music in a private school in Stonington, CT as well as continuing as Organist/Choir Director (handbells, youth and adult choirs) in Noank, CT. Linda now resides in Venice, FL. Besides being “mostly” retired, she is the Organist/Director of Music at Community Presbyterian Church in Englewood. In her free time, she is a chauffeur, maid and butler to a very silly, but adorable shepherd-mix dog.
