There was great joy in Marblehead when First United Church of Christ-Congregational held the Installation for their Pastor, Rev. Dr. Doulglas J. Williamson on Sunday, Aug. 8. The impressive ceremony was led by Northwest Ohio UCC Association Minister Rev. Dan Busch and Northwest Ohio Association Clergy Representative Rev. Becky Sunday.
Members of the congregation, guests and a dozen ministers attended the ceremony. The Ministers processed into the sanctuary wearing robes and stoles. Rev. Sunday sang two solos and light refreshments were served. Rev. Williamson came to Marblehead in November 2019, but his Installation was postponed due to the pandemic.
First UCC is open for in-person Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. Distancing and masks are appreciated but not required.
