On Sunday, June 6th, along with welcoming new members, we welcome Beth Eustis as our Bridge Pastor. The role of Bridge Pastor is to provide pastoral leadership and care while our Search Committee seeks our next settled Associate Pastor.
This is a part-time position that is focused on nurturing the adult spiritual formation opportunities of our congregation. In addition, Beth will also assist with the leadership of worship and offering pastoral care. You’ll note in Beth’s bio that she is a Member in Discernment approved for ordination pending a call. This means she is credentialed to serve a congregation but does not yet have authorization to preside over the sacraments (communion and baptism). Her ordination will confer the title of Reverend and the grant the privileges of presiding over the sacraments.
Beth can be reached at email@example.com and will work remotely and on IUCC’s campus. We give thanks for this opportunity to minister together.
