Ministry Description It is the mutual hope of the First Congregational Church of Newbury (FCCN) and the West Newbury Congregational Church (WNCC) to share a minister. While these are different churches and communities, they share important motivations, needs, and goals. These two churches have a history of sharing occasional special services or programs, such as Maundy Thursday worship. Working with each other in a shared ministry will be new to us. We see this as an opportunity to preserve and strengthen us both. Both churches are committed to overcoming any logistical or practical obstacles such as times of service. We are also currently exploring ways for various church committees to work together in order to simplify the work and schedule of a shared minister as well as to avoid unnecessary duplication of roles among our two churches. Our goal is to see our two churches thrive and grow. We are looking for help to maintain a place for them in the community so they can serve its people and its institutions. We want to see our contribution to our world flourish, locally and beyond. The prospect of our two churches working more closely together is exciting, and it would be a blessing to have a shared pastor who serves as a common thread for our greater community. FCCN/WNCC - Attributes we feel are most important in a minister 1. A “people person” who is cheerful and friendly with a good sense of humor 2. Thoughtful (aware of local and wider contemporary issues), 3. A good speaker who also listens well. 4. Support with visitations those in the congregation and community who are ill and/or aging. 5. Work to attract youth and young families (family focused) 6. Maintain and even grow both local and world-wide ministries in which we already engage. 7. Help support our ONA process 8. Can resolve conflict with patience and humor Please download the West Newbury Profile by clicking on the blue download more information button on the right.
