Pastor Mike will serve as supply minister at Ridgeville
Senior Minister Mike Bruce will conclude his career in full-time ministry at the end of June, completing four years of service to John Wesley. Pastor Mike announced his intentions to retire in early spring. He and his wife, Angela, will remain in the area.
Pastor Karen moving to the Upstate
Associate Minister Karen Lail Jones, who arrived at John Wesley a few months before Pastor Mike, will likewise be moving to another appointment at the end of June.
She and her husband, Andy, and their two children will move to Taylors, SC in July. Thomas and Laila were born here while she was our associate minister.
Pastor Karen will be the Minister of Christian Education at the Buncombe Street Methodist Church in Greenville. Andy, a hospice chaplain in the Charleston area, will be seeking a similar position in the Upstate.
The Staff Parrish Relations Committee (SPRC) will sponsor a drive-bye for the departing ministers on Saturday, June 27 from 4-6 PM in the parking lot of the church. All are encouraged to pass through and wave their goodbyes and best wishes.
