Stephanie Lonergan volunteered and has been appointed the Board’s “Secretary/ Clerk”. We are so appreciative of her offer to serve with the board.

In April, the board approved our church entering into a four-part Covenant with Dr. Linnea Lindsey. The four partners are: Dr. Lindsey, First Congregational Church, PeaceHealth, and the Western Regional Conference of UCC. All four partners agree to support each other. Dr. Lindsey is a long-time member of our church and has recently been appointed as the Oregon Network Director of Behavioral Health Services of PeaceHealth.

We have five board positions coming available. And, we are fortunate to currently have six church members who have expressed interest in being elected to the 2022-2023 board, and have received five completed applications at this time. What a delight to have congregation members volunteer their time and energy and heart to this holding of our church!

Mark your calendars for our bi-annual Congregational Meeting to elect our five new board members on Sunday, June 12 after worship, in-person. The church board has recommended Dan Close for Moderator and Polly Shannon for Vice Moderator; these positions will also be confirmed at the Congregational Meeting.
