The presbytery continues to mark transitions and passages in its community life.

Bethany Benz-Whittington
Bethany Benz-Whittington, Stated Supply Pastor at Peace Presbyterian Church

The Peace Presbyterian Church welcomes Bethany Benz-Whittington as its stated supply pastor beginning on April 17.   The church thanks Don Mossa for his faithful service to the church as its temporary supply pastor since early 2015. 

We also think of other churches and pastors in transition and add our prayers: Raymond Guterman’s last Sunday in the pulpit at First Presbyterian Church of Ocala was April 10.  Jim Weldon, the organizing pastor of Fleming Island Presbyterian Church, shared his last sermon message with the congregation on April 3.  

We celebrate anniversaries as well: in March, Barbara Hamilton (stated supply – Mayport) and Hunter Camp (associate pastor – Memorial) celebrated 15 and 20 years of ordained ministry (respectively). 

We rejoice with Sheryl Sumlin-Barclay (now Sheryl Sumlin-Walker), in her recent marriage. 


As a presbytery we come together in prayer and extend well-wishes for our friends and colleagues in their times of celebrations and transitions!
