Jack and Lynda May
Lynda and I were married in Lakeland, FL on August 16th, 1980, and were blessed with a daughter, Ashley, on February 5th, 1985. We first attended West Bradenton in 1984 and became members in 1985. A year later, a friend and I were asked to teach the College & Career Sunday school class. In 1989 I began to serve as Sunday School Superintendent and continued to teach, filling in Sunday mornings where needed, while also teaching a teachers’ class Sunday evenings. Lynda is a teacher at King Middle School here in Bradenton, and I am the General Manager and Sales Director of Magee Sign Service in Palmetto. We both enjoy Family, Friends and Florida State University football (Ashley graduated from FSU in 2007) and I love to play golf (I am a scratch golfer… mostly scratching my head and wondering if I brought enough balls to finish the round).
About twelve years ago I discovered a lot of ex-youth workers were wandering the halls and not attending a Life Group, so we decided to begin a new group for them. That group has changed over the years but we are still hard at it. Our Life Group is a conglomeration of almost retired, soon to be retired and retired couples and singles that have a desire to grow in Christ, study the Word of God, engage in intercessory prayer and just enjoy each other’s company and fellowship. Being a part of a Life Group has created lifelong friendships for Lynda and me. I love the study of God’s Word and the change it continues to deliver in our lives. I cannot begin to tell you how important the relationships we have developed over the years here that have enriched our lives beyond description. I encourage everyone to check out our Life Groups. Getting involved and committed to a Life Group helps us all and gives every Christian a venue for growth, fellowship and ministry… Try it, you won’t regret it!
