SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE STAFF PASTOR PARISH RELATIONS COMMITTEE

SPPRC is pleased to announce the name of our new pastor.  Bishop Mark Webb will be appointing Rev. Brad Chesebro as our new pastor as of July 1, 2021.  Sunday, July 4th will be our first Sunday to celebrate with Rev. Chesebro.                                                                                                                                                                                 

Pastor Brad comes to us having served the New Hartford UM Church for the last 5 years.  He looks forward to coming here and helping us move forward with our vision.                                                                                                                                                                                 

Pastor Brad has 3 grown children, the youngest being 18. None of the children will be moving with Pastor Brad to the parsonage.                                                                                                                                                                                  

The committee was very pleased and impressed by Pastor Chesebro and what he will be bringing to us as our new pastor.  As one committee wrote to me “I went into the meeting depressed and woke up this morning exuberant.” That person has expressed our hope for Pastor Chesebro. 

Let us pray:

We celebrate and give thanks to God for the appointment of Rev. Brad Chesebro to our church.  We pray for him as he transitions from his former appointment.  It is God’s hand in this and we pray together for the future of Rev. Chesebro and Foothills UM Church.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
