ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING – SUNDAY FEBRUARY 12, 2017
We will hold our annual meeting on Feb 12, 2017 along with a pot luncheon. Among reviewing the annual reports PNC will have our pastoral candidate provide the worship for that day. Which after a meet and greet with her we hope to take a congregational vote to confirm her as our next pastor.
About our pastoral candidate………
Rev. Julie Raffety grew up in Wisconsin and attended University of Denver for her undergraduate education and Denver Seminary for her Masters in Divinity. Julie's first call was as an Associate Pastor for Congregational Life at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Rockford, IL. Julie loves the essential tenant of Reformed theology that God chooses us and pursues us into relationship, sometimes over and over again, but with Christ's vulnerable, unconditional love, and grace, never gives up on us and thus, it is never too late for us to respond to the Holy Spirit. Julie enjoys running, snowboarding, and knitting. She has a twin sister (brother-in-law and niece too) in Lambertville, NJ who she is excited to be closer to geographically. Julie is excited about serving together at First Presbyterian in Franklin and trusts that God has great plans in ministry for us together.
We look forward to seeing a large turn out from our congregation on this special day.
On behalf of the PNC committee we want to thank all for your prayers and support!!
