A Warm Welcome to Rev. Nancy Yao!

Welcome to our Interim Pastor, the Reverend Nancy Meehan Yao. 

Nancy is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.  She was co-pastor, with her husband, James Yao, at the Hector and Lodi Presbyterian Churches from 2009 to 2013.  In 2013, she moved to a 1/4 time position with Hector Presbyterian Church leading and planning worship, youth, children and families activities, education and outreach.  In 2013, she also became a stated supply pastor for the First Presbyterian Church in Hammondsport on a 1/2 time basis.  Her responsibilities there included leading worship, pastoral care, moderating Session, leading new mission and outreach, education and renewal.  Nancy has had interim training, which means she will be well equipped to lead us through the transition to an installed pastor. 

Please join me in welcoming Nancy to our church and congregation starting November 16.

Thanks also to the pulpit supply pastors since Bev retired.  They include Rev. Fred Magley, Rev. John Kotun, Priscilla Andrews, Bob Sell, and Rev. Wayne Gusafson.
