The FPC Session is very pleased to announce that we have approved an agreement with Sue Melrose to serve as our Interim Pastor throughout the search for a permanent pastor at FPC-Oregon, beginning September 1, 2021.
Pastor Sue served several congregations during her career, most recently as Pastor at FPC in Succasunna, New Jersey and Pastor at FPC in Farmington, Michigan. She is an ordained Presbyterian minister, with a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and a Doctor of Ministry from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. After retirement from full, active ministry, Sue has temporarily assisted several congregations in an Interim capacity; most familiar to us are congregations in Baraboo and in Madison at Covenant Presbyterian. She is quite familiar with the issues and challenges we will undertake as we proceed through our pastoral search process. We are most fortunate to have her leadership and experience as we move forward.
Pastor Sue lives in Madison and is becoming quite familiar with the brief commute to Oregon. She is married to Rev. Dr. Paul Melrose, who is ordained in the United Methodist Church. They have two adult children and three grandchildren.
