A Journey of Discernment

     We spent about 16 months during 2018-2019 searching for a new pastor.  Our process led us to the realization that we needed a new model of ministry for our church.

     As we pondered this, we identified two essential elements:  worship, and taking care of our members and others.  We decided to explore a model that has these as two separate roles.  We would search for someone to assume pastoral care responsibilities, and others to lead us in worship. We have found ministers to fill both of these roles.  

Pastoral Care -- David Butler assumed this role on July 15, 2019. His responsibilities are as follows:

  • Provide pastoral care to the congregation.
  • Accompany a member of the Board of Deacons to deliver communion to home-bound.
  • Moderate session meetings.
  • Attend committee meetings at First Presbyterian Church as needed.
  • Meet with potential new members.
  • Attend meetings of John Knox Presbytery.
  • Officiate at the sacrament of baptism or assign this to the worship leader.
  • Officiate at funerals (pastor's prerogative, as requested)
  • Moderate the annual congregational meeting.

The Worship Leader's responsibilities are as follows:

  • Prepare the worship bulletin in final form and mail it to the church secretary.
  • Preach and lead Sunday worship and any other services within his/her contracted time.
  • Officiate at Holy Communion within the worship service.
  • Moderate congregational meetings held in the context of worship.
  • Attend Worship and Music Committee meetings as needed.
  • Receive new members during the worship service.
  • May officiate at baptism at the direction of the pastor.

"Coffee Hour"

In the comfort of your own home!  We will have the opportunity to spend a little time after worship catching up on how everyone's doing.  So grab a cup and stick around.  It's nice to see folks' faces.
