Guest Minister for 8/13

Rev. Deborah Loomis Lafond is a retired UCC pastor who served MA churches in a variety of ministries for 36 years. She loved working in Christian religious education ministries with children and adults, as a CE consultant, as an intentional interim/revitalization minister, and as a settled pastor in Princeton, Marlborough and most recently Barre, MA. She was active as an association and state conference volunteer and involved with a variety of leadership endeavors. In July 2016, she and her husband of 45 years, Arthur, retired to Deborah’s parents’ home on Little Sebago Lake. They have been in the process of renovating the house and unpacking to become truly settled Maine residents! Their three adult children live in Falmouth, ME, Andover, MA, and Denver, Colorado. They have two grandchildren and a shy aged cat named Fiona.
