Wesley is pleased to welcome Rev. Richard “Dick” Garland as our Interim Pastor!
Rev. Garland is a very active “retired” Methodist minister, who in 2012 will mark 50 years as an ordained minister. Rev. Garland is a native of Indiana and a Purdue Alumnus. He graduated from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary and earned his Masters at what is now UMASS-Dartmouth. For more information on Rev. Garland click here.
Rev. Garland will begin his Wesley ministry on Monday, October 24, 2011 and will begin conducting our worship services on Sunday, October 30, 2011. He is equipped and ready to minister to Wesley UMC! After our Staff-Parish Relations Committee enjoyed a visit with and got to know a little about Rev. Garland on Sunday evening, October 23, 2011, we believe he brings the gifts and talents Wesley needs at this time. At his request, his contact information is provided as part of this announcement. Rev. Garland can be reached by telephone at: 401-294-5215 or 603-560-7672 or via email at RevHiker@aol.com .
