We currently have a vacancy in our pastorate. In the church constitution, the Pulpit Supply Committee is charged with making arrangements for pulpit supply during the absence of a Senior Pastor from the Church for an extended period.  The Committee shall also recommend to the Church an Interim Pastor as the need arises. The Committee is actively working on both responsibilities. The Church has been blessed by the many gracious and gifted preachers who have helped us fill the pulpit.  Listen to their sermons here.
