Interim Pastor's Message

Greetings, all, from your temporary shepherd!

“Spring being a tough act to follow — God invented June.” You will also see this quote by Al Bernstein in the June 2 worship bulletin. It's a favorite.

Another, which I recently discovered: “It's spring again. The earth is like a child who knows poems by heart.” (Rainer Maria Wilke)

Spring is a time of beginning again, of seeing the world renewed in new growth and greenery — a time of taking great joy in the wonders of God's creation displayed in full bloom. To begin a new ministry, to forge a new relationship with another group of God's faithful people, is an added blessing in this beautiful season. Interim ministry is filled with “hellos” and “goodbyes” as we come and go from church to church. It's exciting, it's joyful, it's painful. The journey itself is a pilgrimage, and it is a blessing to take this journey with a congregation. I am always privileged to be the bridge between the former pastor and the pastor to come.

It can be a time of anxiety for a church: “Who is going to lead us now?” It can be a time of anticipation and change: “What do we need to do better?” It can be a time of assessing the church's ministry and mission: “What is God calling us to do — and to be?”

These are a few of the questions that we will ask together as we take this journey with one another. I'm still finding my feet, as the saying goes, learning who you are and what roles you have, etc. I am so grateful for your warm and welcoming spirit, and I look forward to working with you in ministry.

You will soon see signup sheets for Cottage/Parlor meetings, which will help me know who are you. These are small groups of 6–8 people who will meet with me and share some things about yourselves and your church. These can be held after coffee hour on Sundays, and/or during the week, and/or via Zoom from our homes. I will consult with the Deacons to work out the details on these, so stay tuned for more information. But I hope you will be able to participate and help me get to know you better.

I will try to find a consistent day to be at the church in addition to Sundays, or at least let you know ahead of time what my schedule will be. Please don't hesitate to be in touch with me by email or phone if you just want to say hello or if I can help you in any way.

Blessings to you all in this beautiful season — spring, almost summer!

Pastor Jerrie
Rev. Jerrie Shepard Matney
