Pastor Cheri’s New Call
As many of you know by now, First Baptist Church of Pontiac has asked me to serve as their interim pastor, and I have agreed. Jim Wolf retired on April 24th after 32 years as their senior pastor, so it’s a big adjustment for them, and GRR Interim Associate Executive Minister Brian Romanowski asked if I might be interested in helping them out. I had been thinking that I might like to serve in one more interim position before I “totally” retire. I have told the Pontiac church that I’d see them through at least Easter, if necessary, when we could reassess. The position will begin officially on August 1st, although I am making myself available for pastoral emergencies before then. My last Sunday on staff at FBC Bloomington will be July 31st.
My membership will stay here, and I’ll still be living in Normal, so I’ll still be around. What a joy it has been to be in ministry here over these past years! Thanks to all of you for your love and support.
Technical Notes on the Worship Livestream:
* Recordings of the worship service are usually available on our YouTube Channel immediately after the service ends.
In the event of livestream disruptions:
* Try completely exiting the program/tab or app and the rejoining from the front page of the website or using this link: https://www.youtube.com/user/FBCBloomingtonIL/live
* On a brighter note: did you know that there are lots of ways to watch our church services and other videos on your TV? If you have internet access and either a smart TV or other device connected to your TV (like Roku, Amazon Fire, TIVO, PC, etc.), you can use a built-in YouTube player to access our YouTube Channel – just look for First Baptist Church Bloomington. Chatting during services will still require a separate computing or mobile device. Call or email the church if you’d like technical support in getting this set up.
