This summer we welcomed Pastor Trudy and Bob Codd to our faith community. Pastor Trudy has been serving the Lord for most of her life, but as a pastor since 1992. She has served a number of churches, beginning at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in her hometown of Staten Island, NY, and most recently at the South Dover Windall Church and Burbank Church in Duchess, NY. Pastor Trudy is enthusiastic about her ministry here in Pleasant Valley, and is excited about moving forward with the “call to action” initiative which strives to bring life back into churches during these times of declining membership.
Pastor Trudy and Bob, between them, have 6 children and 10 grandchildren, with one more on the way! They are settling into their home in the church parsonage on Raymond Drive, along with their cat, and are happily getting acquainted with their neighbors, their church family, and their community as a whole.
We would like to invite everyone to attend a Welcome reception for Pastor Trudy and Bob on Sunday, September 9th beginning at 2:00 PM in Fellowship Hall at the church. Please come to meet your new neighbors and to spend some time getting to know them better.
