In our United Church of Christ, a service of installation for a pastor is a service of holy covenant. During the service, a local church and its newly called pastor and teacher enter into a covenant bond, which remains in effect as long as the pastor continues to serve that congregation. During the service a covenant is also created between the church and its newly called pastor and all the United Church of Christ congregations in the conference where that church is located
Rev. Clyde Steckel will lead a service of installation for Rev. Abigail Henderson at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 29. A meal, hosted by Special Functions and Parish, Life and Fellowship committee members, will follow the service. All are welcome.
