The pastor of our church for the transitional time is the Rev. Dr. Allen M. Fluent. He will serve our congregation until we elect a new “settled pastor”. Dr. Fluent was ordained as a minister of the United Church of Christ in 1965, following his graduation from Eden Theological Seminary, where he also obtained the Doctor of Ministry degree in 1973. He is a graduate of Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and earned a Master of Arts degree in sociology from the University of Missouri, St. Louis.
