In the United Church of Christ, pastors are “installed” in their called positions. Typically, these are positions in churches, but sometimes clergy are called to specialized ministries. The Rev. Timothy Weible has been called to a hospice chaplaincy and he will be installed to that call during a special worship service on Sunday, September 30, at 3:00 p.m., here at Niles Discovery Church.
The service of installation is in many ways a typical worship service. It has prayers, scripture readings, hymns singing, etc. It also includes a liturgy where we celebrate the covenant between Tim, our congregation, the wider United Church of Christ, and the hospice agency he works with. The service will be followed by a reception.
Please come to this important moment in the life of our congregation and in the ministry of Tim Weible.
