Ministry Description First Congregational Church of Rock Springs is a vibrant, Open and Affirming faith community that has been an integral part of Rock Springs since 1881. Members and friends hold a diversity of beliefs and opinions (in which we agree to disagree), but the fellowship and acceptance from this church family keep them coming back to worship with us. Our church houses both a preschool and the La Hermosa Guatemalan congregation for their Sunday and Thursday night worship services. We have sponsored a boy scout troop since the 1930s. We maintain strong partnerships with the Episcopal church, our sister church in Green River, and the Mount of Olives Lutheran church in Rock Springs. Our church runs a thrift shop (Broadway Bargains) which is well staffed and organized with the help of devoted volunteers. Our youth has a strong presence in our church and actively participate in church services through music and leadership in worship. As we look to the retirement of our current pastor, the church is in a good, stable place. We have a core group of committed members who are the backbone of the congregation. We are seeking a designated-term pastorate of up to a year to walk with us through this staff transition, leaving open the possibility for the candidate to be considered for the settled pastorate following designated term. We are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic person who is able to be flexible, has a sense of humor, and is willing to maintain partnerships and community involvement with our local churches, Boy Scouts of America, and first responders. We do not want to limit our search to one who has more or less experience, but seek one who is willing to embrace our congregation wholeheartedly and walk with us on our spiritual journey in faith.
