The Reverend Dr. Janet Hufford was recently welcomed as the new pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Pataskala as the church offered gratitude to their transitional pastor, the Reverend Gary Brose. The pastors, with the help of a church leader, marked this passing of pastoral leadership with a liturgy of farewell and welcome. Reverend Brose was thanked as he gave the church keys back to the church elder and a liturgical stole to newly-called pastor Janet. Janet will be installed on Saturday, July 13. This impressive farewell and welcome liturgy, used at Pataskala’s pastor transition, could be a gift in any church transition.
