We are very excited to announce that the new York District Administrative Assistant is Autumn Christine. Autumn has already done some training with Vicky and will be covering the district office "virtually" through the month of June. As of July 1st, she and Rev. Cathy should be in place in the office. Autumn and her husband Todd currently live in Cassville, where Todd pastors at Trough Creek Valley Parish. However they are moving later in June to Hanover where Todd will be serving as the new pastor for Grace Hanover UMC. They have two children, Paytyn and Tristan.


For those who may not know where McConnellsburg is located, we are in the Altoona District along Route 30 on the border with York District and very close to the Harrisburg District. This is a part time position, but could turn full time. The salary is negotiable. I would greatly appreciate if this could be shared or maybe if there are ministry candidates that you think would do well in this role as they get started, we would love to talk to them. This is a great teaching congregation who has a real passion for children and youth.
