A note from Pastor Julie…
Dear First Presbyterian Members and Friends,
Our Session has approved the hiring of seminary intern Andrew Hostetter for three months this summer. Andrew is in his last year at Palmer Theological Seminary and is in the midst of the ordination process in the Presbyterian Church. For the past decade he has worked at Wayne Presbyterian Church, first as a youth ministry intern while a student at Eastern University and then as his full-time position. He has served as Associate Director and Director of Youth Ministry, as a Pastoral Intern, and as Co-Director of the College and Young Adult Ministry. Andrew will continue to work at Wayne half-time while working at First Presbyterian Church for 20 hours each week. In our congregation he will work with several of our committees and commissions to help us strengthen our ministry to children and youth and increase our outreach efforts. He will help lead worship most weeks and will preach several times this summer. Andrew is married to Sarah, who also works full time in youth ministry at Wayne while finishing
seminary and the ordination process as well. They recently purchased their first home in Berwyn, where high school students come to hang out each week. He is thrilled to be with you this summer, and cannot wait to get started!
Please welcome Andrew as he begins his ministry with us in mid-May!
Grace and Peace to You,
