A truly wonderful and joyous occasion took place at the FUFON General Meeting on Sunday, February 3 when the assembled membership voted unanimously to have Reverend Debra Thorne become our new minister.
The meeting was the culmination a busy Candidating Week that included numerous occasions for Reverend Debra and Fellowship members and friends to get to know each other. Rev. Thorne’s week was packed with meetings and events including Board, committee and small group meetings, an open house, a building tour, Spaghetti Night, two sermons and much more.
Following the vote, Reverend Debra returned to the Hall to be greeted by a circle of very happy members singing “Circle of Song” led by Tony Turner.
After almost three years without a minister there is much excitement and anticipation as members and friends eagerly await the official arrival of Reverend Debra Thorne into our Fellowship life on August 15th.
