An Introductory Message from our Interim Pastor:
Greetings in the name of Christ,
My name is Alice Bolen and I am looking forward to being your interim pastor.
Just a brief introduction. I am married to Dr. John Bolen, retired professor from Simpson College and also an ordained pastor. Together we have 2 children. We also have 6 grandchildren and 2 great grand boys. And a very precious dog, named Cooper.
I served as one of the Associate Regional Ministers for 13 years, and then served First Christian Church in Perry for 8 1/2 years and Runnells Christian Church for almost 12 years. I served 2 years as Pastoral Care minister at West Des Moines Christian and you all will be my 5th interim.
I am really looking forward to getting to know the members and friends of the church and getting acquainted in the community.
We will then begin to talk together about what our goals are for the time we are in ministry together and preparing the congregation for the future.
I hope you will feel free to stop by the church any Wednesday morning this summer. In the fall we will be adding more time at the church and in the community.
