CANDIDATE SUNDAY OUTCOME –
WELCOME TO THE REV. MICHAEL SLOAN
Submitted by Holly Bauer-Mergen
Sunday, January 13, 2019, was a special day in the life of our church. At the congregational meeting, members voted to call the Rev. Michael Sloan as our pastor. Rev. Sloan will be joining us in mid-February; his daughter, Michelle, will be joining him after her high school graduation in Illinois. The Sloan Family will be moving into the parsonage. We look forward to them joining our church family and working with him in the life of our church.
