6/28/20 – “See God is doing a New Thing”

Posted on : Jun 26th, 2020 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Dear Congregation:

The Pastor Search process began in December 2018 when Laurie Fox (chair), Tom Droney and Bob Patenaude, aka the Profile Committee, met for the first time to begin developing the church’s Profile document, with input from the congregation about who we are and how we envision our future together. When the Profile was completed in May 2019, the Search Committee began meeting. We searched far and wide for the perfect person to become our next pastor. We believe we have found that person in Janice V. Steele.  Rev. Steele is a graduate of Pacific School of Religion in Oakland. She had “life experience” before going to Seminary, including working in a variety of jobs in LA before joining her talented family in their music/theater touring of Europe and on Broadway in NYC.  She has led several congregations since her ordination and will be moving to LA from Minnesota to start here at our church on October 1st—assuming you join us in the Zoom worship and congregational meeting on Sunday and vote in the affirmative! There will be a “Children’s Time” early in the service on Sunday, so those of you with children will want to have the kids watch the Zoom with you at the beginning. The sermon for Sunday is “See God is doing a New Thing,” inspired by Isaiah 43:19-21.

As your search committee we truly believe Janice is the right person to lead West Hollywood UCC into a new day.  

Michael Hargove, Lisa Bove, Karl Ackerman, Laurie Fox and Holly Gross


Isaiah 43: 19-21


See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
