St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Morris

St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Morris is in search of a 3/4 rector. The congregation is a small but close-knit group of committed Episcopalians dedicated to ministry with each other and their community. The members have made it a priority to commit to their church not only as readers, acolytes and Lay Eucharistic Ministers but also by putting energy and resources to the stewardship campaign each year. By holding each other up in prayer during the week as well as on Sundays, and spending time together outside of worship, parishioners create a warm and welcoming environment.

The new rector of St. Thomas should be able to guide the congregation spiritually, through sermons and Christian education. The members maintain a warm relationship with their clergy, so the next rector should also be willing to be involved socially at times with parishioners. 

To learn more about St. Thomas, please visit their website, or view their OTM profile. If you would like to submit your name for rector, please fill out the Clergy Information Form for Transitions.

 


 

 Grace Episcopal Church, Sterling

Grace Episcopal Church, located in the town of Sterling, Illinois, is looking for a part-time rector. The community of faith in Sterling is intergenerational, high energy group focused on making members of their town feel just as loved and cared for as the members of the congregation. The church has spent considerable time and energy creating new programs for all ages, including their Kids Club and semi-monthly church breakfast. In the wider Sterling-Rock Falls area, Grace works with other churches to provide Vacation Bible School, and volunteer in soup and breakfast kitchens to provide meals for the hungry. Grace has several members of a mature age who offer much wisdom to the congregation, and has also this fall re-established the Sunday School program for children, which had not been offered in recent years. 

Grace’s next rector should look forward to working with the highly active lay leaders to continue the outreach in the community and maintain the warm and welcoming hospitality of the congregation. Since this hospitality extends outside of the church doors and after Sunday services, the rector should also be ready and willing to be involved in Sterling outside of Grace’s walls. The congregation appreciates a person with an energetic prayer life passion for preaching. 

To learn more about Grace, please visit their website, or view their OTM profile. If you would like to submit your name for rector, please fill out the Clergy Information Form for Transitions.
