Brandon Congregational Church announces the forthcoming retirement of The Reverend William L. Bartholomew, pastor and beloved friend. Serving the church and the community for over six years, Reverend Bartholomew made his plans known to the congregation in February of this year, writing “Our worship of God in word and music has lifted our spirits and filled the air all around our historic church building. The carillon has kept folks reminded that God loves them.” Sending out over one hundred epistles since the beginning of the pandemic, Reverend Bartholomew continues to serve as a beacon of hope in these troubled times and will continue to serve the church for a period of at least one year. A search committee has been formed and is working to compile an official United Church of Christ profile which will be made available to perspective pastors nationwide. To gain a broader perspective of the role the church plays in the community, any expectations people may have, and how the Brandon Congregational Church can better serve, the committee will be reaching out for and greatly values input directly from members of the community. If you are interested in participating in this effort, please contact the Brandon Congregation Church at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-247-6121.
