Pastor (Half Time), Chewelah, WA
Chewelah United Church of Christ (UCC) is excited to recruit a pastor in an open and affirming congregation located in scenic Northeast Washington State. While honoring the spiritual traditions of this 140 year-old congregation, Chewelah UCC is focused on service to God, our neighbors, community, and a safe, caring world and its environment. The numerous ministries of this church provide love and caring for the congregation, long-term care residents, youth; food pantries and meals; housing for service groups e.g., AA, Scouts, Meditation groups, Writers’ groups, Women’s Marches, as well as “services for the unchurched”. A collaborative partner in an ecumenical “Faith Resources Group”, Chewelah UCC joins our neighbors in advocating and enacting “A Just World for All”. This openly welcoming congregation seeks a pastor who is friendly; caring; effective with all ages, especially youth; involved in community life; and a good communicator as well as Spiritual Guide. Members look forward to joyful, thought provoking, uplifting, and challenging sermons/messages. Congregational learning during a period of transition has set goals of a growing membership, especially among younger members and families, and vibrant worship services including the creative use of technology and music to enhance traditional and Coffee House services. Referred to locally as “that Hope church”, Chewelah UCC invites your application and commitment to serve alongside us. Chewelah is a small, rural community with four seasons, and nature out your backdoor - a major ski area, 27 hole-golf course, lakes, mountains, hunting, wildlife - only 45 minutes north of Spokane with major airports, medical schools/services, and shopping. Chewelah, a community of people who care about each other and work together, has an active arts community with a Performing Arts Center, Museum, Library, radio station, hospital, schools, nearby colleges and universities.
