During this meeting, Anne Keener will be approved as a Commissioned Pastor, and Mary Sellers Shaw will be examined to be ordained and called as our Associate Pastor. This will be a day of celebration for our congregation, and we welcome all to help things run smoothly! If you are interested in volunteering, email Jerry Houston at jerrybhouston@gmail.com.
