Seek First the Kingdom of God – Matthew 6:33

Candy Garren

I feel very privileged to be the pianist at Northgate Baptist Church. Music is such a huge part of my life. I truly believe “The joy of the Lord is my strength,” and I’m usually humming or singing an inspirational song as I go through my day. I have eleven grandchildren ranging in age from 9 years to 19, some of my favorite memories involve singing and rocking them to sleep.
My heart is also stirred by missions, as I’ve been blessed to take four mission trips to the Dominican Republic.  I enjoy being a part of something that is makes a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. I love seeing how Christ changes their lives.
In my spare time I love to crochet, paint, cook, and garden. My husband is Tom Garren, and we have been married for 36 years. We have 6 children. For 34 years I was a rural carrier for the Travelers Rest Post Office.  The top priority in my life is Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior and friend.


Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
