In order to make a smooth transition for a new Pastor, guidelines will help define the change in our relationship with Pastor Chris. She will be restricted from any Pastoral duties at our churches, and from membership in our congregations. However she and her family will remain in Catawba, and her friendship will not end.
Pastor Chris’s last Sunday with us is February 24, and her last day is February 28.
