To date there have been a total of 24 different pastors appointed to serve the White Pine church. Typically, the pastors have stayed on about four to five years and then moved on to other appointments. An exception to this is the ministry of Rev. Rosemary DeHut who was appointed to White Pine as a quarter-time local pastor in mid-2002 and just recently retired at the end of 2020. During these 18 years of faithful service she shaped the White Pine Community United Methodist Church into what it is now reaching out into the community with the love of Jesus. On July 1, 2021 Rev. Pete LeMoine started a new appointment as pastor at White Pine. Pastor Pete is the first pastor who was previously a member of the White Pine church and was mentored, in part, by Pastor Rosemary before deciding to make a commitment to ministry in the United Methodist Church.
We welcome pastor Pete to the pulpit, and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship. This blog will be a place for him to share information, thoughts, and prayers.
