A WONDERFUL ANNOUNCEMENT

We have a new permanent pastor, starting March 1st!  Pastor Jason Bantz, who filled our pulpit a few times in 2019, including the entire month of October, will our new pastor!

Pastor Jason previously ministered at College Corner Presbyterian Church for 21 years (1997 - 2018).  He was that church's pastor when they left PC(USA) and joined the EPC in 2009.

We are thrilled for Pastor Jason, his wife Susan, and their family to be joining our church.  May the Lord give strength and guidance to the Bantzes in this next step in their Christian lives.
