Chewelah United Church of Christ (UCC) is excited to recruit a pastor in an open and affirming
congregation located in scenic Northeast Washington State. While honoring the spiritual
traditions of this 140+ year-old congregation, Chewelah UCC is focused on service to God, our
neighbors, community, and a safe, caring world and its environment. The numerous ministries of
this church provide love and caring for the congregation; youth; food pantries and meals;
housing for service groups e.g., AA, Scouts, Meditation groups, Cancer Support Group, Writers’
groups, BLM vigil, Women’s Marches, as well as “services for the unchurched”. A
collaborative partner in an ecumenical “Faith Resources Group”, Chewelah UCC joins our
neighbors in advocating and enacting “A Just World for All”.
This openly welcoming congregation seeks a pastor who is friendly; caring; effective with all
ages; involved in community life; and a good communicator as well as Spiritual Guide. Members
look forward to joyful, thought provoking, uplifting, and challenging sermons/messages.
