as our new Associate Pastor for Christian Education and Family Ministries.

Sarah began her ministry with us on Monday, July 2. Her first Sunday taking part in worship leadership will be this Sunday, July 8 in our 10 a.m. worship service. We will have a reception in McLeod Hall immediately following worship so that members and friends of First Pres can personally greet Rev. Sarah.

Later at 4 p.m. on July 8, the Presbytery of Tampa Bay will be installing Rev. Sarah Bishop to her position here. That Service of Installation, led by a commission of ministers and elders from our congregation and other churches in our presbytery, will be held in our sanctuary. We hope our members will return at 4 p.m. to take part in Sarah’s installation.
