2023 Pastor Appointment

New Song Family, As Chair of the Staff Support Committee I have information to share today related to our church and our pastor. Our congregation is connected to congregations across eastern North Carolina. Together, we partner in mission and share resources, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. In our United Methodist family, pastors are assigned, reassigned, or appointed to new churches annually. This week our district superintendent contacted me to let me know that Pastor Gary will be receiving a new pastoral assignment this July to Clarks United Methodist Church in New Bern. 


On behalf of Bishop Shelton, I am pleased to share information regarding our next pastor, who will be coming to live and serve with New Song beginning this summer. Our newly assigned pastor is Carol Grantham, who will come to us as she finishes her current assignment in Pollocksville, NC. Carol and her husband, Scott, have a home, here in New Bern. She will be coming for an introductory visit with our Staff Support Team in the near future. We give thanks for God’s guiding hand in bringing the Grantham’s among us this summer, even as two summers ago we were blessed by the coming of the McAbee family. 


Thank you for your prayers and support as we enter this time of transition.
