From the Call Committee

One of the aspects of calling a new pastor is to have a Ministry Site Profile completed.  The MSP encompasses the mission of the church which assists the Synod in providing candidates congregational input vital to this process. On Sunday, January 14, the Call Committee is asking the congregation to come to one of two meetings to assist in completing the MSP.  Please join us prior to the service between 8:30-9:30 or immediately after the 10AM service so we can start gathering information as we move forward in search of our next pastor.

Welcome to Our Interim Pastor

The Reverend Barbara Melosh is a second-career pastor, ordained in 2005 after a
teaching career (English and history) spent mostly at George Mason University.
Her first call was to a small church in Baltimore city, a story told in her 2018
book “Loving and Leaving a Church: A Pastor’s Journey.”

Since her retirement in 2014, she has served as interim pastor in several Delware churches–Grace Lutheran Church in
Hockessin, St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Wilmington, Hope Lutheran Church in New Castle. Now begins her ministry here at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Newark as of Sunday, July 9,2023. We welcome Pastor Melosh with open arms as she bridges the gap between pastors and helps prepare us to call a new minister of word and sacrament.
