Pastor Nancy preaching
Be sure to be present as our congregation marks the end of Pastor Nancy’s ministry to, with, and among us as she departs to become the new pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Hartford. The Rev. Chuck Erickson, our regional minister with the wider settings of the United Church of Christ, will be with us to preside at our rite of leave-taking for the ending of a pastoral relationship. Following worship, we’ll share in further food and fellowship as we bid Nancy farewell and Godspeed.
