Pastor’s Welcome

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ!

    My name is Rev. Lane Glaze and I am privileged to serve as the Pastor for Waters Edge (WE). WE is my second appointment as an ordained United Methodist elder, after spending the first half of my adult life in business as a CPA and trust officer. My first appointment after finishing Duke Divinity school was at Clemson University where I served as a Campus Minister from 2001-2013. While the Glazes had a great time in Tigertown, we were looking for a new adventure when the last of our two daughters left for college. WE – a new church still very much in its formative stages – was exactly the kind of assignment I was looking for when I was appointed here four years ago.

   Having grown up in Charleston, I certainly love the Lowcountry – its sights, sounds and smells. I even love the heat and humidity…as weird as that might sound. Once this part of the world gets in your blood, it is always a part of who you are and how you look at life. I have loved serving this community with all of its beautiful diversity, and what a blessing it is to serve a flock that includes folks from Port Royal to Fripp, from Habersham to Harbor Island and all parts in between.

   Like so many others who are connected to the community of faith known as Waters Edge, I believe that God has something special in store for us all in the years to come. I invite you to give Waters Edge a try…where we are focused on worshiping God, loving one another and serving ALL…with joy!

Grace and peace always,


Rev. Lane Glaze
