There will be a special reception between services on August 20 to thank and recognize the Rev. Jen Kimball and the Rev. Travis Greenman as their interim ministry in our midst comes to a close. Jen’s last Sunday will be August 20, and Travis’ last day as a paid staff member of St. Andrew’s will be August 31. We are so very, very grateful to both of them for their faithful, compassionate, inspiring ministry in our midst.
Jen will head off for a well-deserved break at her family farm in the Midwest as she discerns where God is calling her next. We will miss her. Travis will begin full-time work at Patriots Colony in September but will periodically preach and celebrate here at St. Andrew’s. Like the Rev. Carol Chamberlain, she will be an Associate Priest of St. Andrew’s, worshiping regularly in our pews and serving at the altar on occasion. Travis is looking forward to being able to sit next to Hal!
At the 10:30 service on Sunday, August 20 there will be a Litany of Departure for Jen, an opportunity for us to mark liturgically the close of this relationship and to send Jen off with our love and blessings. At the 10:30 service on Sunday, August 27 we will mark Travis’ new status in our midst with a Litany of Transition, asking for God’s blessing on her as her ministry takes on a new form.
Please plan to be present at the reception on August 20 to offer your thanks and blessings to Jen and Travis.
