Good morning. Today, as Staff Parish Relations Committee Chair for our congregation, it is my responsibility to share with you the news that we will be receiving a new pastoral appointment effective July 1, 2021.
Eunkyong Kim has been appointed to our church by the Bishop. Eunkyong is currently serving a part time appointment at the Cedar Cliff UMC in Haledon, NJ. Her husband is the pastor at the Franklin Lakes UMC. They have a 9 year old daughter. They came to the United States in 2005 from Korea, where they were active in the church. She has experience in music ministry and children’s ministry. Eunkyong is looking forward to coming to Newfoundland UMC and continuing to grow our ministry.
Transition is always a difficult time, and I ask you to be in prayer with our Staff (Pastor) Parish Relations Committee, Rev. Jenn Lovallo, and Eunkyong Kim as we work towards the new pastoral leadership for our church. I also want to take this opportunity to thank our current pastor, Rev. Jenn Lovallo, for her faithful leadership in our church. While saying goodbye is always difficult, we want Rev. Jenn to know that she will be in our prayers as she prepares for a new chapter in her ministry.
