Parish Associate welcomed at Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church

Reverend Denise Edwards has been introduced to the congregation of MSPC as a Parish Associate, and has been named a temporary Presbyterian member by the Committee on Ministry of Presbytery de Cristo. She was ordained by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and pastored congregations in Ohio before coming to Arizona with her husband Ruling Elder Rod Hutton.

A Parish Associate is a member of the clergy who is often retired, but has a voluntary ministry role in a congregation. Pastor Rachel Srubas introduced her to the congregation and she has already preached in the absence of Pastor Rachel, warmly received by everyone.

Her pastoral gifts for worship leadership and pastoral care have already helped the entire body of Christ at MSPC. Join us for a Sunday worship service, 10:00 a.m., followed by a time of fellowship and refreshments. MSPC is located at 14240 N. Oracle Road in Catalina and is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA), centered in Christ and caring for community. The website is
