On Sunday, May 18th, Pastor Sam offered his last sermon with our Apple Creek United Methodist Church. We held a farewell reception for him immediately following the morning service. 
As most of you know, last fall, Pastor Sam announced that he would be leaving the ministry to pursue a career in education.  For the past several months, in addition to his responsibilities at our Church,  he has been working to complete his degree in education and has been serving as a substitute teacher from time to time.  After much consideration, and under counsel of our District Superintendent Valerie Stultz, the SPRC committee has decided to release Pastor Sam of his responsibilities at Apple Creek United Methodist Church, allowing him time to transition out of the ministry and focus on his studies.  This also allows our congregation time to “take our collective breath” before welcoming our new minister. 
We are pleased to announce that on July 1st, Bishop John Hopkins will appoint Pastor Kenn Curren as our new minister, at which time Pastor Kenn and his wife, Betty, will join our Church family.  Pastor Kenn currently is serving as minister to both Holmesville UMC and Mount Hope UMC.  We look forward to welcoming them to our church and community. We encourage you to worship with us on July 6th, his first Sunday with us.  Please watch for more information in future newsletters and emails.

Effective May 19th, Reverend Dennis Rinehart, retired minister from Shreve UMC, will begin as interim Pastor for our church.  Help us to welcome Pastor Dennis on Sunday, May 25th.

We ask that you pray for God’s guidance for a smooth transition for all…the Troyer family, Pastor Kenn and Betty Curren, Reverend Rinehart, and our church family.  Also keep in prayer the Holmesville and Mount Hope congregations as they experience the loss of their current minister and proceed with the appointment process.    If you have any questions, we urge you to contact members of the SPRC.    

By managing this transition well, and with God’s help, we feel everyone involved will be further strengthened for the common work we engage in for God’s kingdom!
