When members of Plymouth recite our covenant, we say, “We seek to follow in God’s ways, made known and to be made known to us.” For some of our us that means answering God’s call to ministry. In recent history, several members have answered the call:
Rev. Becky Withington answered God’s call to ministry and now serves as Pastor at Pilgrim UCC in Anacortes.
Kevin Bechtold completed seminary and is currently awaiting a call.
Jennifer Hagedorn and Meg Rodgers are both currently in seminary.
Laura Robinson is currently completing the final steps for her ordination and is employed at Plymouth UCC in Ames, IA.
Some of us are called by God to paths other than as a pastor. But, we all are called to walk beside each other, support each other and pray for each other. I ask that you hold these ministers and future ministers in your prayers. Our siblings in Christ need us to love and support them. They started their journey here at Plymouth, and no matter where they go as part of the wider church, they will forever be part of the fabric of our congregation.
