Let us gather together!

Dear friends,

As perhaps you have heard, the Session has decided to return to worship in the sanctuary on Sunday, June 6th. The Worship and Music committee met this week and decided on the following guidelines for meeting together.

1. It is not necessary for you to be vacinnated in order to attend.

2. Masks are optional, depending on your comfort level. Masks will be available for anyone who wants/needs one.

3. Bulletins will be on the table as you come in.  Please pick one up on your way.

4. Your offering can be placed in the offering plate that will be near the entrance to the sanctuary (coming from the office area).

5. If you choose to sing, please wear a mask when you do. If you choose to simply hum, masks will not be necessary.

6. We will be going to summer hours that day: worship will be at 9:30 am.

7. If you would prefer to worship via Zoom as we have been doing, that option will be available to you. Elaine will be sending out those invitations, along with a copy of the bulletin.

8. We will not celebrate communion yet.

I'm sure there will be some tweaking to do, but this is what we have so far. If you have further suggestions, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you in church!

Peace, David

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.
