Barber comes to Carnation Church

   Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ has called Tara Barber to serve as their Sabbatical Interim Pastor. She will be serving with the church three-quarter-time from June 15 to September 15 while the regular pastor, Jeff Spencer, is on sabbatical.

   Barber completes her Master of Divinity degree this month, graduating from the IETS program at Seattle University. She has been approved for ordination pending a long-term call and will serve Tolt Church as a licensed minister.

   "I am very pleased to be coming to Tolt Church," Barber said. "This is a wonderful community of caring, compassionate people."

   Barber says she will bring a renewal focus to her pastoral work and worship leadership during her time at Tolt.
