  •  New Pastor Calling:
    Our church is currently in the process of calling a new Pastor.
    A formal meeting was held and a calling issued. The prospect,
    Rev. Brad Varvil, has declined due to family health concerns. Therefore, Worship Services will continue to be conducted with invited guests and Rev. Noel Koss
    until a new Pastor is called and accepts.

    We are meeting to discuss possible candidates and your input is requested. There is a notebook in the narthex that contains several names and biographies of candidates. Please do not remove this notebook as the information included is confidential.

    We will keep you informed.
