A message from the Session about Presbytery Policies
Because it is Presbytery policy for this information to be sent turing times of transition, the Presbytery asks that we as a Session share this important information with you. If you have any questions or concerns, speak with any session member.
As Presbyterians we strive to do all things "decently and in order". To assist in doing that during transitions of pastors, the church polity has guidelines for appropriate separation when a pastor leaves. This basically protects the departing pastor from expectations for continued pastoral care by the previous congregation that would draw her away from focusing on her new congregation. It also protects the pastor called to follow her from any misunderstanding by congregants of who is now in that pastoral role and allows this new pastor to develop appropriate bonds with the congregation without interference.
What this means for us is that Leigh cannot continue to offer pastoral care to us after she leaves for her new call. She will not be able to return for baptisms, funerals, visitation. While she may retain friendships with members of this congregation, she cannot continue in any pastoral role.
We love Leigh and she has been a great blessing to this congregation and to many of us personally! But we know God has plans for us and already knows who our new pastor will be! We need to both pray for Leigh and her new ministry and pray for our congregation as we move forward to a new chapter in the life and ministry of this church family.
