WARNING

Special All Church Meeting of the East Granby Congregational Church

This is a warning for an All Church Meeting on Sunday October 23, 2022 that will take place in the sanctuary immediately following the 10:00 A.M morning worship service.

The purpose of the meeting will be to authorize the Physical Resources Ministry to use up to $40,000 of Trustees Funds to repair the roof of the Church east of the sanctuary and the connecting roof to the Christian Education Center.  This expenditure of Trustee Funds has been approved by the Board of Trustees and requires approval at a duly called All Church Meeting because the expenditure is in excess of $25,000.  This is in accordance with the East Granby Congregational Church By-Laws.

At the conclusion of the presentation of this expenditure request, the membership will be asked to vote on the following motion:

To authorize the Physical Resources Ministry Team to expend up to $40,000 to repair the roof of the Church east of the sanctuary and the connecting roof to the Christian Education Center. 

 

Such expenditure of funds shall come from the East Granby Congregational Church Trustee Funds.

This Warning is being made in accordance with the East Granby Congregational Church By-Laws.

Part-Time Interim Pastor

The Reverend Pam Vollinger

 

 

 

Welcome The Rev. Pamela Rose Vollinger, EGCC Interim Pastor

 

The East Granby Congregational Church (EGCC) Council is excited to share with each of you that we have hired and ask you to welcome The Rev. Pamela Rose Vollinger as our Part-Time Interim Pastor.  Her covenant with EGCC in that role starts on Sunday November 1, 2020 and lasts through at least January 31, 2021.  EGCC and Pastor Pam have the opportunity to agree on a contract extension if her family situation permits and the pastoral needs of our church can be met. 

 

 

The Rev. Pamela Rose Vollinger is a Connecticut native and graduate of Russell Sage College in Troy NY with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy.  She also has a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School in New Haven CT.    She is an ordained member of the United Church of Christ and has served churches in various positions as full-time and part-time pastor roles for churches in Fisher’s Island, NY, Berlin CT, Kensington CT, Groton CT, Manchester CT, New Britain CT, Enfield CT.  Our search team voted unanimously to recommend her for the part-time (50%) Interim Pastor role we were charged to fill.

 

Pastor Pam lives in East Hartford with her husband Gary.  They share a love for the outdoors through walking, hiking, kayaking, biking.  In fact, the day we met to sign the papers they were headed up to the rail trail starting in East Granby and expecting to get up into MA.  She also enjoys travel, reading, prayer, spirituality – especially Celtic, healing, ecumenism, interfaith activities, pilgrimages and being with family and friends.

 

The part-time (50%) Interim Pastor role will focus on Worship, Pastoral Care and Leadership and providing her input on our Church’s mission and the other challenges (e.g. search for an Settled Pastor, COVID-19 and its impact on worship and interpersonal relationships to name a few) we face.  Recognizing the learning curve before her, Pastor Pam plans to spend time with the staff and Ministry organization to listen and discern areas where focus is required by her, the staff and the Ministries.

 

Pam’s contact information will be provided when her covenant begins on 11/1/2020.
