     The Diaconate is delighted to share with you that the Rev. Dr. Libby M. Grammer has accepted the call to be the next Senior Minister of Lakeside Church. Following an overwhelmingly affirmative vote by our church on Sunday, July 14, 2024, Dr. Grammer (Libby) accepted our invitation and shared this important news with her current congregation this week.

     Libby has served the last 6 years as the Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Martinsville, VA. She is married to Will Underwood and they have two young daughters, Elena (age 5) and Iris (age 2). The Grammer-Underwood family will begin their transition to Rocky Mount in the coming weeks and Libby will begin her work at Lakeside on August 15 and preach her first sermon here on August 18. We are excited to welcome Libby and her family to Lakeside and to the Rocky Mount community!
