In case you missed it – the 2015 Clergy Appointments have been announced!
 As of July 1, 2015, it is Bishop Minerva Carcaño’s intention to appoint Rev. Erin Maddox McPhee and Rev. Matthew McPhee as co-pastors to the Eastern Sierra Shared Ministry, which includes the United Methodist congregations in Big Pine, Bishop, and Independence. The Bishop intends to appoint Rev. Kathleen Puntar to Lompoc UMC. Please pray for all of us, as we transition into these new appointments.
We will be meeting at 5:30pm on Monday, May 18, 2015, in The Methodist Center at Bishop First UMC (located at 205 N Fowler STreet in Bishop, CA) for a Shared Ministry Gathering and Potluck. Please bring food to share, as we meet our new District Superintendent, Rev. James Powell, and discuss the details of how this new model of Shared Ministry will function. All are welcome!
