Rev. Starr Redwine's Installation
Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 2, when the Rev. Amy Starr Redwine will be officially installed as Pastor during 10:00 am worship. In the same service, the new classes of elders and deacons will also be ordained and/or installed. The Rev. Amy Miracle, pastor of Broad Street Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio, will be guest preaching, and the service will be followed by a reception in the Fellowship Hall. (Our summer schedule of one worship service at 10 am in the sanctuary begins on Sunday, May 26.)
In an installation service for a pastor, the local presbytery receives the pastor into membership through vows, prayer, and the laying on of hands, making the relationship between the pastor and the church he or she serves “official.” In the same way, when officers are ordained or installed, through vows, prayer, and the laying on of hands, they enter into a term of service as elders or deacons.
