Interim Pastor, The Rev. Dianne Deming
Pastor Dianne, a native Californian, graduated from the University of Redlands, and from San Francisco Theological Seminary, where she met her husband, Frank. She has served churches in California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, and is immediate past moderator of New Castle Presbytery. Pastor Dianne appreciates the unique role of interim pastor, and feels blessed to guide the church in understanding who they are and what it means for them to be led into God’s future, thereby preparing them, with God’s help, to choose, receive and embrace their next pastor.
In addition to ministry, Pastor Dianne enjoys playing the flute, quilting, bicycling, travel and spending time with family and friends. Her bucket list includes a cross-country RV trip, a visit to New Zealand and, in retirement, to write adult Christian education curriculum while preparing for her recital at Carnegie Hall.
