Concert to Benefit the Steeple

The beautiful steeple on Williston’s landmark Federated Church must be replaced after 150 years overlooking our community. We are asking the community to help.

A wide range of sacred and secular music by:
-The Federated Church Choir
-The Social Band – classical and folk traditions

Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, creates thematic programs that weave together song and poetry, striking a balance between thoughtfulness and joviality seldom found in choral groups.  For more information visit their website  The Social Band.

-Special guest: Williston native Helen Lyons performing opera and Broadway songs

Meet Rev. Paul Eyer, Our New Settled Pastor

Reverend Paul Eyer was called as Williston Federated Church’s settled pastor in 2017.  His first Sunday as our pastor was October 29, 2017.

Here is a video introduction of Paul and his wife, Rev. Jackie Lingelbach:

Listen to the sermon Rev. Eyer gave on Sunday, July 23, 2017 when he first met the congregation (and immediately prior to the congregational vote to call him as Williston Federated’s new pastor):

Paul comes to us with many skills and varied life experiences.   He was an attorney in his first career.  He graduated from George Washington University in 1984 with a Juris Doctor degree and served as a legislative assistant to U.S. Senator David L. Boren in Washington D.C.   While Paul chose to study law, his heart was never far from the church.  He grew up in a family that was active in the church and Paul’s commitment to the life of the church continued into adulthood.  That goal of service to others led Paul to enter the Lancaster Theological Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity in 2006.   While he was in seminary, he met his lovely wife, Jackie, who is also a UCC pastor.

Paul was a much-loved pastor at St Luke’s United Church of Christ in Lancaster, PA. where he served for four years.   Subsequently, he was the Director of Alumni/ae and Church Relations at the Lancaster Theological Seminary, his alma mater.   In that role he build relationships with churches and pastors,  preached and led worship in many church settings, and had the opportunity to offer support and guidance to seminary students.

Paul counts it a privilege to serve as pastor of Williston Federated Church where he sees God at work through a wonderful congregation.
