Larry Gish, SPRC Chairperson, Dorchester UMC and SPRC Representative, Friend UMC

Dear Friends,
The cabinet and I wish to announce that your current pastor, Rev. Dr. Paixao Baptista, will be appointed to Centenary United Methodist Church, Beatrice, Nebraska beginning, July 1, 2020. This appointment
concludes a long process during which the staff parish committee of the church has been consulted along with Pastor Baptista.
As with all appointments, this one will be fixed during the annual conference session in May.
We are currently in consultation with the Staff Parish Relations Committee of your church parish to discern the best pastoral leadership for you going forward.
I extend my best wishes and prayers to you all during this transition of pastoral leadership for your congregations.
Grace and peace,
Ruben Saenz, Bishop”
