The following staffing changes began when our previous Senior Pastor retired in 2014. Pastor Kris served as Acting Senior Pastor during this time. When she was called as Senior Pastor on October 2, 2016 Rev. Patience has continued in the following ways.
Rev. Patience currently serves with us for about 10 hours a week, focusing on caring for people on our Visitation list, leading Golden Times and the Helping Hearts, assisting with the Sunday morning Adult Class, assisting in worship monthly, preaching quarterly, and attending staff meetings. During this interim time, her hours will increase to 15 hours a week, she will add doing Wednesday hospital visitations, funerals, and additional Sunday morning Adult Class sessions. She typically does not have set office hours but appointments can be made by contacting her.
On January 8, 2017 the Associate Search Committee was installed and they have begun the work of preparing the necessary items for a search for our next Associate Pastor.
Thank you to the committee members: Pastor Kris and Dave Fleming (Co-Chairs), Donna Christman, Aften Hamm, Ardith Kuhns, Sue Ondrey, Carrington Smith, Phil Wehr, Teresa Dalrymple, Natalie Ondrey, Mollie Jarrett, Jason Klinger, Ashley and Ben Anderson.
The staff and leaders can’t thank you enough for your support and prayers during this time of change. If you have questions or ideas or want to offer your help, please contact Consistory President Brad Hackett, Church and Ministry Chair David Fleming, or Pastor Kris Snyder-Samuelson, Senior Pastor.
