Chris Lennon, Office Manager

I’m Chris Lennon, the Office Manager. I have been on staff since October 2019. I previously was retired when my husband Bill had cancer and passed away. So I am starting life over.

Primary responsibilities include weekly bulletin development, church calendar management, monthly newsletter, supply ordering, greeting all visitors, security, and a host of customer service duties for the entire staff and congregation as needed…coffee, stamps, phone calls, etc.

My dog, Scout (girl Airedale), comes to work with me occasionally…which is such a great perk!

Linda/Pat/Maddy, Nursery Childcare Attendants

I’m Pat Zeka. I work in the nursery as a childcare attendant every Sunday from 9am till noon and during the school year every Wednesday from 5pm till 7:30pm.

My duties are caring for the little ones and giving them love and attention while they are away from their parents. I love this job and everyone of the kiddos are important and very special. 

I retired from Friendship Haven in 2014 as a caregiver after being there 28 years. Friendship Haven will always be dear to my heart. I have 3 grown children, 14 grandchildren and a cat named Sammy.
My favorite quote is… “Know that you are somebody because God don’t make no junk.” Life is good. God is good.
