It is with excitement and delight that our Staff-Parish Committee announce the appointment of Rev. Karen Muntzing as new lead pastor, beginning June 30th.
The Staff-Parish Relations Committee, with District Superintendent Dennis Miller, Bishop Palmer, and our West Ohio Conference Cabinet, spent months in prayer and deliberation, contemplating who would best lead us through this season of change. All involved rejoice that Pastor Karen is God’s choice for Christ Church. Pastor Karen’s reputation is known throughout West Ohio Conference and beyond. She was a highly sought after candidate. We are blessed at Christ Church to have her join us.
Meet & Greet with Pastor Karen
On Sunday, June 30th, we welcome Pastor Karen to our pulpit and to our family. Join us in the Fellowship Hall for the 9 a.m. Donut Time and Sunday School hour for a “get to know you” time. To bless Pastor Karen & Brook with a welcome gift, we suggest a gift certificate to local restaurants, farm markets, specialty shops, or experiences. This will help her and her family experience all the great things Marietta has to offer! No Marietta Bucks please, those are already covered.
