May 19, 2013 - Day of Pentecost
You are cordially Invited to the Service of Ordination to Christian Ministry Of Gale Tompkins-Bishel at 5:00 PM.
It is with great delight that we announce the upcoming ordination of our "Timothy" Gale Tompkins-Bischel. It is a rare honor and privilege in the life of a local congregation when a member hears and answer the call to ministry as a vocation. Gale is now in what is called "The Search and Call Process." This means that she will be invited to interview with churches and ultimately will leave us to begin her ministry with another congregation.
