Meet the FPC Transition Team

Whenever a pastor leaves a PC(USA) congregation for retirement or to take a call with another congregation, there's a process described in the Presbyterian Church USA Book of Order for dissolving an installed pastoral relationship, electing a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) and eventually initiating the call process for a new pastor.

Dr. Sid Batts announced his retirement in the Session meeting on March 19, 2018. The FPC Transition Team (TT) was created and approved by the Session in that same meeting.  

TT members are guiding the process forward, gathering information from the pastors and staff, offering opportunities for the congregation to ask questions and receive answers. Please use the individual email links below, the contact us link at the bottom of the page or our phone numbers to get in touch with us to ask us questions and share ideas.
