Welcome, Pastor Holly, our Sabbatical Pastor!

East Church’s Pastor Shelly will be on a sabbatical leave until mid-February, 2022. We are excited to welcome Pastor Holly, who will temporarily take on Pastor Shelly’s role while she is away.

The Rev. Holly MillerShank – Pastor Holly – has a deep and abiding passion for the local church. Holly is a member of St. Paul’s UCC in Schaefferstown, PA, where she holds a four-way covenant as a minister whose most recent calls were in the national and conference settings of our wider United Church of Christ. Prior to her service on the national staff and the staff of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church or Christ (SNEUCC), Holly served as pastor and teacher of Grace UCC in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

Pastor Holly and Pastor Shelly have worked closely together and developed tremendous mutual respect as colleagues in ministry during the past year that Holly served as the Interim Area Conference Minister for the Northeast Region (including the MBA, Metropolitan Boston Association) of our United Church of Christ. Both Pastor Shelly and Pastor Holly believe the Holy Spirit is very much at work (and play!) in this sabbatical season that is deepening and extending their ministry together and with us, the people called East Congregational Church of Milton, UCC.
