We enjoy many different activities indoors and out. We enjoy gardening, kayaking and beach walking together. Two of Pat's favorites are hunting and fishing. One of my favorites is looking for rocks. I have a fondness for hats and Pat likes a nice colorful suit. Pastor Pat drinks diet and I drink regular!
We attend Simpson Park Church Camp in Romeo. During this years family camp meeting 6 of our grandchildren will be staying in our cabin with us, one in the youth dorms. Our grandchildren look forward all year to coming to camp. They love church camp as we do.
In the past Pastor Pat and Karen have both served on several committees for the Blue Water District: Town and Country Committee and the Board of Missions & Church Extension. Pastor Pat also served on the Committee of Ordained Ministry for the Blue Water District as he also did for the Saginaw Bay District.
Pastor Pat graduated from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio. His first appointment was as the associate pastor of the Capac Charge (Capac 1st, Zion & Cole UMC's). While serving in the Capac Charge he was also appointed as pastor of the Omard UMC. Conference then split the Capac Charge and put Cole and Omard together, with Pat serving as Pastor. The district then put Cole with another church leaving Omard as a single charge; Pastor Pat remained with Omard UMC. While serving Omard Pat was also assigned as the interim associate pastor of Lake Orion UMC. In 2001 Pastor Pat was appointed as the pastor of the BASS Charge (Bethel, Akron & Sutton-Sunshine UMC). He was then appointed in 2011 to Michelson Memorial UMC in Grayling.
We are excited about Pastor Pat's appointment to Yale UMC and look forward to whatever God has in store for us!
