Effective July 1, 2015, Bishop John Hopkins will appoint the Reverend Josh Arrington to be our next Pastor. 

This appointment has come after consultation with our Pastor/Parish Relations Committee to determine the gifts and graces needed to lead our churches in the future. 

Reverend Arrington is presently serving as the Pastor of Smithville United Methodist Church in the Canal District. We invite you to come join us for worship July 5 to welcome Pastor Josh and his wife, Eileen, to Collins & West Hartland. 

He will also appoint our pastor, Rev. Ev. Stoddard, to be the pastor of Faith United Methodist Church in Cambridge on the Southern Hills District of the East Ohio Conference.

We invite your prayers for the Faith Church family as they prepare to receive Rev. Ev. and Melissa; for Keith Peachey, who will be moving from Cambridge Faith to Coshocton Grace, and for the Cabinet and Bishop John Hopkins as they seek wisdom in the appointment process for a new pastor for Collins/West Hartland. We look forward to new adventures in mission and thank those who have worked so well with us to build the Kingdom of God in the Collins/West Hartland area. Thank you for your prayers!
