On Sunday, May 19 at 3pm, we’ll gather in the Sanctuary to do three things:
- Ordain Lauren and install her as Minster for Urban Outreach
- Eat. A lot.
Pastor Lauren graduated with an M.Div from Emory University in Atlanta in 2013, thinking she wanted to be a hospital chaplain. However, she found after graduation that her call had changed. She didn’t know what it had changed into, until God led her to parish ministry. Now, she’s saying “yes” to the call God has for her life, and being ordained in the United Church of Christ!
An ordination is a special occasion, and we’ll be celebrating with bluegrass hymns, prayer, Communion and of course, the Laying on of Hands to bless Lauren for her ministry. Afterwards we’ll be enjoying some soul food from Jackie’s Place, as well as cake and refreshments courtesy of the hospitality team at USSJ.
This event is free, and the more, the merrier!
