EUMC Announces New Pastor (July 1st)
The EUMC Staff-Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) Chair, Max Wayman, announced on Sunday, March 14th during the Sunday morning worship service that our new pastor will be Rev. Randy Burwell, effective July 1st. The SPRC has been working closely with District Superintendent Bradley Watkins to help discern this new alignment and pastoral assignment. The SPRC met with Rev. Randy Burwell the week prior and approved his appointment. EUMC will no longer be aligned with Stonington UMC but will be a two-point “charge” with Midland UMC in Kincaid, where Rev. Burwell currently serves. EUMC will retain their Sunday worship hour of 9:00 am.
Pastor Caleb Announces His move
On Sunday, February 28th, Pastor Caleb made public his move into the Wisconsin Annual Conference. June 30th will be his last day as the Edinburg-Stonington UMCs pastor and July 1st will be the beginning of his appointment at Port Edwards United Methodist Church in Port Edwards, WI. The Staff-Parish Relations Committee is already working hard with our District Superintendent to discern your new pastor. Pastor Caleb made this decision to move purely for personal reasons and the opportunities that are aligning themselves in WI. He will be leaving with warm feelings and good memories, new friends made, and innumerable life lessons and ministry experience. Pastor Caleb’s last day in the church pulpit is Sunday, June 13th. A farewell potluck will take place on that Sunday at noon. The following Sunday, Edinburg UMC will join with Midland for worship. Then the Sunday after that, Midland will join Edinburg UMC for worship.
