Our pastor, the Rev Dr. Fred Weidmann, was “called” to become the pastor of The Church-in-the-Gardens during a visit for the candidate weekend in October of 2021. He stepped into our pulpit on February 6th of this year. His leadership is revitalizing and energetic. It is time to move toward a formal installation.
Rev. Weidmann’s “primary call” to ministry is through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He had dual standing in the United Church of Christ in California, but was required to reapply through the Metropolitan Association of the UCC when he came to minister to us he now again holds the status of “Dual Standing” in the UCC. The Association has shown genuine interest in the ministry and future of our church.
The installation will create a four-way covenant between the Metropolitan Association of the UCC, The Metropolitan New York Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, The Church-in-the-Gardens, and Rev. Fred. The planning will be a collaboration of all parties.
Join us for the Service of Installation, planned for Sunday, January 29 at 3 p.m.* A celebration in the Community House will immediately follow.
*NOTE that there will no Sunday morning worship service on January 29. Our one worship service that day will be the Installation service at 3 p.m.
