St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Marshfield, WI

(1-26-19)
St. Paul’s seeks a part time minister or candidate interested in serving a paid internship under the mentorship of our current Pastor who is retiring in Fall 2019. Responsibilities include leading worship services, community outreach, and faith formation.

St. Paul’s UCC has served the Marshfield area for 125 years, adapting and reaching out to welcome people from all walks of life to grow in Christian faith and fellowship, guided by God’s Holy Spirit and modeled through Christ’s love for all. We seek partnership and leadership from one called to joyfully proclaim God’s Word and to inspire the unique and varied gifts of congregants to serve His Church in meeting the needs of those in our community. We seek to be the hands, heart and feet of Christ in living out His Word.
Marshfield is in central Wisconsin, a city of 19,000 surrounded by rolling hillsides of rich farmland and dairy farms. Despite our relatively small size, Marshfield hosts world class medical facilities, nationally recognized schools, and a wide variety of businesses and industry. Church affiliation is strong in the area along with civic pride in growing our community for all generations. The community is very family-oriented, boasts a low cost of living, and provides a wide range of services and programs for people of all ages.

Even though it is important that we aspire to grow the congregation, we value being a small church that is strong in fellowship and personal relationships. We delight in the children’s participation in weekly service; it communicates our love of family in all shapes and sizes. We seek to strengthen our outreach efforts to welcome new members or to welcome back inactive members through Christ’s example as humble servants.

We are interested in expanding programming for spiritual formation such as adult Bible studies/discussion groups and increasing our participation in the SPICE group (St. Paul’s Intergenerational Christian Education).

A complete church profile is available upon request. Please contact Peg Geegan, Chair of Search Committee at pgeegan@gmail.com or 715-305-6358.
