Rev. Elizabeth A. Perry, our pastoral counselor, has submitted her resignation because her workload at BeADisciple.com, another of her activities, has increased greatly. BeADisciple.com offers online courses and workshops to church leaders and laity. Rev. Beth has been our pastoral counselor since September 2015. She has generously counseled many in our congregation and visited those who have been hospitalized. She was particularly attentive to Hugo Saurny in his last months and helped plan his funeral. She has also led several coffee hour discussions and energized some in the congregation to participate in a protest against an undocumented immigrant’s deportation.
In addition to her work at Chelsea Community Church and BeADisciple.com, Rev. Beth teaches two religion courses at the College of New Rochelle and isa church consultant on reducing the risk of child abuse in the church. She is also on the faculty of the University of Phoenix’s Jersey City campus where she was honored as part of the “faculty of the year” last September. A wife, mother and grandmother as well, she is a very busy person. Our best wishes go with her as she leaves us to serve the wider world.
Information regarding the search for a new pastoral counselor will be posted here as soon as it is available.
