After 29 years of faithful service to Montesano Presbyterian, Pastor Fischback, and Carol, decided it was time to enjoy retirement. Pastor Steve officially retired at the end of last year. While he will be missed, he and Carol have more than earned this next phase of their lives and we wish nothing but the best for both of them. Happy Retirement!!With the Pastor Fischback’s retirement, a Pastor Nominating Committee was formed to search for a new Pastor of our Church. With much prayer from the Committee, the committee chose Rev. Patrick Cobb as their candidate to lead Monte Pres in the coming years. With a vote from the Covenant Members of Monte Pres, Rev. Cobb was approved as our new Pastor, and Installed on January 19. Rev. Cobb is currently processing out of the Army, and we hope to have him with us by the end of February. This is a big move for Pastor Cobb, his wife Melani and children Soren, Addison and Carson. We ask that you please pray for this family as they move to their new community and church.
We have nursery care available for children Infant through Pre-K during worship
