Call for Gary

On January 31, the voters of our congregation extended a call to Gary to serve part-time as assistant pastor. This morning, his letter of acceptance was read to the congregation.

Installation is scheduled for early service (7:45) on Sunday, February 26. There's already a dinner scheduled for that day [Goods and Services Auction] so we'll be celebrating his installation while we're bidding on wine bottles and babysitters and bookshelves and pie and stuff.

For those who've asked, yes, Gary will still be working full-time at his day-job. This is part-time, preaching when Pastor is out of town, assisting sometimes with hospital or shut-in visits, and helping out in some other ways on an as-needed basis.


  1. Our congregation is blessed to have him serve, and from what Randy says his day job place is blessed to have him there too. :)

    Kinda quirky welcoming lunch! We may have to bid on a bottle of wine to gift to our new assisting pastor.
