Dear Members of GBPC,
We are providing the written statement of what was shared in worship yesterday for those who were unable to attend. An email with more information about the congregational meeting will be shared soon.
After prayerful discernment by Reverend Kelly Nieto, Reverend Mike Nieto and the Administrative Commission, a congregational meeting will be held on October 17, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary to consent to the dissolution of the pastoral relationship between Reverend Kelly Nieto and Reverend Mike Nieto and Great Bridge Presbyterian Church, and to approve appropriate terms of gracious separation requested by the Nietos and supported by the Administrative Commission. While the Reverends Michael and Kelly Nieto would have preferred a different outcome, they do affirm the Presbyterian tradition of discerning in community and respecting the hierarchical structure of the PC (USA). Mike and Kelly join the Administrative Commission in recognizing the need to heal the deep conflict that exists between members of this congregation. They keep all of you in their hearts and prayers, and Mike and Kelly wish peace and Christ’s love to the entire congregation as the Church moves forward with its mission under the Word.
