Rawlins Cooperative Parish
On Sunday, April 8th, the France Memorial Presbyterian Church and the First United Methodist Church of Rawlins celebrated their becoming one, the Rawlins Cooperative Parish! Rev. Jeff Rainwater, District Superintendent for the United Methodist and Rev. Dr. Steve Shive, General Presbyter of the Presbytery of Wyoming were present and each along with Pastor Sharon Langfeldt gave brief messages! It was a joyful day celebrating two struggling congregations becoming one after three years of exploring, discerning, worshiping and serving together! Oh, what a day! Oh, what a new beginning!
Also on this day, with much sadness, Rev. Rainwater announced that Rev. Sharon Langfeldt had been reassigned to a new call in Denver. In keeping with the By-Laws of the newly constituted church, a Presbyterian minister will now be sought!
United Presbyterian Church, Riverton
With deep sadness and regret and yet the hope of healing, it was announced also on Sunday, April 8th that the Rev. Dr. Thea McKee will be applying for disability with the Board of Pensions and will not be the Pastor of the church effective April 23rd. It takes 90 days of non-working for disability to begin. It is hopeful and prayerful that after a time of disability- of healing and physical therapy that she will be able to return! In the meantime, the Administrative Commission will continue to work with the Session and congregation!
