Preaching will be the Rev. Timoth Sylvia, Senior Pastor of Newman Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in Rumford, Rhode Island.
A graduate of Bangor Theological Seminary, Timoth has served in Youth, Campus and Parish Ministry for nearly 20 years. His passions within the church center around learning with others what it means to be church and how to best be followers of Jesus in times such as this.
Outside of his ministry with Newman UCC, he serves on the Rhode Island Conference, UCC Board of Directors and invests a good amount of his time and energy into advocating for children and families involved in the foster care system. As adoptive parents to three boys and current foster parents to one additional, Timoth and his husband, Peter, find great joy both in raising their sons and teaching others about the foster care system and the needs for which we can all advocate for the children of our communities and our nation.
