New Interim Pastor Selected

The Interim Pastor Nominating Committee is pleased to announce that Kathy Keener has accepted the position of Interim Pastor.

Kathy grew up in Eugene, Oregon, attending Central Presbyterian Church with her educator parents.  After earning her BA in Peace Studies, Political Science, and German, she attended McCormick Theological Seminary and received her Master of Divinity in 1986.  After serving as pastor for a small rural church in Illinois for five, Kathy completed ten subsequent interim ministries.  She looks forward to returning to Oregon.

Creativity, compassion, enthusiasm, and intelligence are what Kathy’s references suggest she will bring to our congregation. She describes herself as a Mary Poppins who will blow into our lives with the tools in her bag that will help us to create energizing spiritual experiences, discover and build on our strengths, and then blow back out of our lives once her work is done and we are ready to welcome a called pastor.

Lake of the Woods Family Day Camp
Saturday, Sept. 6 from 11 am to 7 pm
Come meet the Rev. Kathy Keener


Come and meet our new pastor at the Lake of the Woods Family Day Camp on Saturday, Sept. 6.  Bring your family, friends, pets, lawn chairs, musical instruments, bikes, water toys and boats for one last summer fling, all free-of-charge.

Our large group site at the Rainbow Bay day use area (next to the Lake of the Woods resort/marina) offers shaded picnic tables, barbecue grills, restrooms, ample free parking, and direct access to the lake and bike trails. 

If you are coming around lunchtime, please bring a brown bag lunch.  Parish Life will provide snacks (chips and veggies) and drinks (iced tea, lemonade, water). 

Our hot dog roast and program will begin at 4 o’clock.  Please bring a potluck side dish to share (and a cooler to keep it in, if necessary) and your own place setting.  Parish Life will provide the hot dogs (and buns, condiments, and s’mores) but you may bring other items for the grill if you wish.

During our program we will introduce and welcome Kathy and enjoy some time together to listen to music, sing, talk and pray.  It will be a great way to start out our new relationship. 

Please come and bring family and friends.  Call the church office (541-482-3536) to RSVP so we will know how much food to buy.

Sunday, Sept. 7 is Kick-off Sunday

One worship service at 10 am

Come to hear the Rev. Kathy Keener preach

I think of a hero as someone who understands the
degree of responsibility that comes with one's freedom.
