A reception was held on Saturday, January 15, to introduce pastor candidate Rev. Dr. Sharlyn DeHaven Gates to the congregation of the Holly Presbyterian Church.  It was a real pleasure to meet and talk with Rev. Gates, who is very warm and personable, and to get to know her better after the glowing reports by the PNC (Pastoral Nominating Committee) which had screened-through over a hundred potential candidates. 

The following day, the congregation voted unanimously to accept Rev. Gates as our new pastor.
