Pastor

 

Our congregation is in the process of calling a new minister. Currently, we are going through the development stages to call an interim pastor. Once an interim pastor is in place, this person will help guide and lead us as we seek a new full-time permanent pastor. Until we have an interim pastor in place, we have an engaging group of people covering our pulpit, along with special programming by our choir and church leadership. It is our hope that you will continue to worship with us each Sunday during this time of transition. We ask for your patience through this process, and to please join us in prayer as we seek a new minister.
