Our Minister

Pastor Joe’s First Sunday as Our Minister!

We welcomed Rev. Joe Schulte as our minister on Sunday, February 4! He gave a great sermon and enjoyed sharing a moment with the children of the church. It is great to have a full time pastor to lead us!

Welcome Rev. Joseph (Joe) Schulte!

We are pleased to announce that Rev. Joseph (Joe) Schulte has accepted our call for minister! Rev. Schulte candidated on Sunday, December 10 at the Beresford UCC. Following the worship service, the members in attendance voted overwhelming to accept Rev. Schulte as our new minister. We welcome him and his wife, Beth, to our churches.

A potluck brunch was served prior to the worship service. This gave Rev. Schulte and the members a chance to meet and greet each other! Thank you to everyone who provided and served the delicious meal!


During the worship service, the children of the church enjoyed a special time with Rev. Schulte.

Rev. Schulte is expected to be in the pulpit sometime in February. More details can be found in future announcements!

Members of the Beresford and Centerville congregations bid Pastor Dan and Christi a fond farewell on Sunday, May 21. The Kuiks were honored for their service to our churches. They will be greatly missed!

We also celebrated the 50th anniversary of our yoking with a joint worship service and a catered meal and program.
