"While religion can comfort and enrich, it is too important to be taken for granted.  It must be probed, studied, questioned and challenged, for, in the struggle, it comes to life."    Ari L. Goldman, The Search for God at Harvard



 Interim Pastor

 The Session and the Transition Team are happy to announce that Rev. Jennie Leake Hemrick will begin her tenure as our Interim Pastor beginning August 1.  Her first Sunday, of course, will be August 2 !!

 Jennie is just completing a year’s interim with Grace Moravian Church in Mt. Airy, a church of 400 members.  In the last 13 years she has been the interim pastor in a number of churches about the size of First, Thomasville and served as temporary supply pastor for several small churches.  She worked at Union Seminary Charlotte campus for a year where she was the Director of Supervised Ministry & Vocational Development.  Jennie is an active member of Salem Presbytery and has held many leadership positions through the years.

 She is from Danbury, NC where she has owned a home for over 30 years. (You’ll want to hear about her house.)  Jennie reports that Danbury is 41 miles from Thomasville, and she will commute.  She will be very accessible with a cell phone!

 Jennie will be responsible for all pastoral duties, just as an installed pastor.  She received the M.Div. degree from Wake Forest University Divinity School in 2002 and will work especially with the Transition Team and the congregation in the preparation of the Church Information Form to be circulated by the Pulpit Nominating Committee in seeking our next pastor.

 You will find her to be very enjoyable!  Remember to introduce yourself to her more than once so that she can become familiar with our congregation as easily as possible.
