Welcome Our New Pastor!

We are pleased to welcome our new pastor, Lee Gangaware, and his wife, Polly, to our church. Pastor Lee isn’t a new face to our church community, as he has been with us in worship many times over the past year. But now it’s official!

When asked to provide a brief bio for publication here, this is what he shared:

     Pastor Lee Gangaware has been in the ministry since 1972, and has served churches through 2015, and has filled pulpits for the last two years! He and his wife Polly have been married 47 years come this August 29th! They have two daughters “Hannah Gangaware and Elizabeth Frye”  and a Foster daughter “Elaine Morrigia”. They have 4 grandchildren: Julianna 16, Catherine 8, Jaron 18, and Jacob 21.

     They live in Colebrook, CT on 6 & 1/2 acres of farmland with 3 turkeys and 10 laying hens, assorted bobcats, owls, hawks, bears, lynxes, coyotes, and more!

     Pastor Lee has felt called out of retirement to “Prepare as many people as he can for heaven!”

We invite you to come and welcome Pastor Lee and Polly to our church on Sunday, July 2nd!

Farewell service for Pastor Trudy

It was a lovely service this morning in church, although bittersweet in many ways. The music was awesome (thanks David), the solo inspiritional (thanks Pastor), but it was a farewell service for our pastor of 5 years, Trudy Codd. She brought us the word of God, and helped us along our journey of faith. Now she will retire for awhile to allow her body and mind to rest and heal, before she jumps into service once again, in some form, to spread the message of love from the Father. We wish you all the best as you move along your life’s journey, Pastor Trudy.

Blessings Abound!

Today was a wonderful worship service in many ways. Those in attendance were blessed twice (or more!!) when we welcomed a beautiful little girl into our church family through her baptism. And it was a joy to see the face of Dan Abbott, a long time member of our church family who now makes his home in the west. Dan was in the area and stopped in for a brief visit. Blessings to little Riley and her family, and blessings and travel mercies to Dan as he makes his way back home. Such joy today!!
