Mt Zion Welcomes new Senior Pastor the Rev. Joan Carter-Rimbach, July 1

 It is our joy to share with you that Bishop Marcus Matthews has appointed the  Rev. Joan Carter-Rimbach as the new pastor for our congregation effective July 1st. 

 Pastor Joan comes to us from her current position as Senior Pastor at the First  United Methodist Church in Hyattsville, Maryland, where she was the first woman  to  serve as the Senior Pastor.  She is one of the leading women pastors in the  United Methodist Church’s Denomination of Women Pastors who serve a congregation of 1,000 or more members. (For more information, see Reverend Joan Carter-Rimbach's biography below.)

The coming months will be an exciting time to be a part of Mount Zion. We have prayed for, and I believe we will be the beneficiary of a “fabulous” pastor in the Rev. Joan Carter-Rimbach; someone who will work with us so that we can continue to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
