*Pastor Tim's first Sunday with us
Rev. Dr. Tim LeConey, the youngest of five children, grew up in southern New Jersey in an American Baptist church and went to Drew University in Madison, NJ. While working at Camp Oceanwood in Ocean Park, Maine, during his college years, he met his future wife, Mary, and discovered a call to ministry. Tim attended Andover Newton Theological School and received a Master of Divinity in 2000, the same year that he was ordained as a minister in the United Church of Christ. Tim served as Associate Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Essex Junction, Vermont, for five years and then Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Fryeburg, Maine, for ten years. In 2013, Tim graduated from Bangor Seminary with a doctorate in ministry. Mary is an Occupational Therapist with Androscoggin Home Health plus being with NH's Visiting Nurse program. Tim and Mary have three children: Liam, 20, will attend the University of Maine at Farmington; Ben, 17, is a senior at Fryeburg Academy. Evan, 13, is an 8th grader at Molly Ockett Middle School. Tim enjoys hiking, nordic skiing, running, reading, listening to music, and singing.

Christian Education Coordinator for Youth and Family Ministries – Patricia Boyle-Wight
We are a church dedicated to extending Jesus' welcome to every person. Our mood is hopeful, our spirit is uplifting. As we gather to sing hymns from our rich heritage, to pray for healing of people and the earth, and to hear an inspiring message from our pastor, we are thankful for our legacy and for Christ's call to lovingly serve God and neighbor. In response to that call, we cheerfully support both global and local outreach to people in need.
West Parish Congregational Church was organized in 1796, and is the oldest continuing institution in the Town of Bethel, after the town itself. The current historic meetinghouse building on Church Street was originally built in 1847.
