The Staff-Parish Relations Committee is pleased to introduce to you our new interim senior pastor, Reverend Rebecca Heid, who begins 1/15/2023. Rebecca was born in Louisville and had two careers before the Lord called her to pastoral ministry. Each of them lasted more than ten years. First, she was a registered nurse having graduated from the school at Norton Infirmary in Louisville and spent most of her nursing years in Baltimore, Maryland. Her father’s terminal illness brought her back to Kentucky, and after his death she ran the family printing business. During that time, the Lord led her to seminary and ordination in the UMC. She served as associate pastor at Christ Church in Louisville for 8 years, and then pastored two churches in Breckinridge County for six years. Retired in 2020, she lives in Carrollton with Charlie (half Irish setter, half black lab) who she rescued from a shelter in Boone, Iowa (660 miles each way!). For a number of years she has declared four ingredients for the perfect vacation: a lake, a canoe, a good book and no cell-phone access!
