We are delighted to host the ordination for Beth Petzke, on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 14th at 3pm. Beth has been called to serve (and has already begun serving) as Interim Pastor for St. Marks’ UCC (Cleveland) and St. James UCC (Spring Valley).
Ordination happens only once for a clergy person – at the time of their first call – usually in their home church. Installation is the ritual of covenanting with each congregation to serve as pastor/teacher. We celebrate with Beth and invite all members and friends to attend this service and a soup supper that will follow.
