Christian Education Update to the Congregation

Dear families and friends of Linden Hills UCC. 


As you know, we are in a time of transition as Ben Whalen leaves the position of Minister for Children and Youth. The Christian Education Ministry Team is very committed to ensuring a smooth transition for the congregation. We’ve initiated a search process for an interim minister for children and youth, and we’ve received several responses. Members from our team, along with a family representative and youth representative, will interview prospective candidates and be in communication with the congregation about that process. Members of the Christian Education Ministry Team will be temporarily coordinating the work of faith formation and family ministry until we have hired someone to fill this role.


We are looking ahead to the upcoming program year which will begin with a Rally Sunday celebration on September 11th. If you’re interested in contributing to any of the following ministry work, we want to hear from you!


• Teach Sunday School

• Deliver an interactive sermon

• Contribute to worship planning

• Organize and direct the Christmas Pageant 

• Chaperone children and youth events

• Interview candidates for Minister for Children and Youth


If there is feedback you’d like to offer, if you’re interested in volunteering your time, or if you’re interested in attending a Christian Education Ministry Team meeting, please contact Lawrence Richardson, CE Chair at
