The Reverand Rona Kinsley is our Interim Pastor, guiding us through a transitional time as we search for a new settled pastor. This is Rona’s fourth interim call, all in Vermont where she makes her home with her husband, Brent. Theologically progressive, Rona believes that following the way of Jesus can lead to transformed and deeply fulfilling lives, and that the church provides a safe and loving community in which to grow in our faith and our ability to reach out effectively to the world around us.
Hal came to GUCC in March of 2010 as our Music Director. He provides direction for the choir as well as organ, piano, harpsichord, vocal and flute music for our services. His musical education includes Westminster Choir College, studied with Dr. Joseph Flummerelt and was chosen artist- in-residence with the Westminster Choir at the Spoleto Festival in Spoleto, Italy. He comes to sacred music as a family tradition, his great-grandfather would lead the Sunday dinner grace being a hymn sung in four-part harmony. Hal’s mother was choir director for 35 years at the Johnson United Church of Christ. In our monthly church newsletter he provides a column entitled “Music Corner” and will always mention “Serving God through Music” as his inspiration for sacred music.
He lives in Glover and loves living on the shores of Daniel’s Pond.
