The Rev Dr. Jim Choomack has announced his plans to retire from active service on October 2, 2016 after 45 years of ordained ministry. The Session reluctantly concurred with his request, as did the Congregation, asking that Northeast Georgia Presbytery dissolve the pastoral relationship, effective September 30, 2016. His last worship service will be Sunday, October 2, which is World Communion Sunday.
This is a bittersweet time, but Greensboro First Presbyterian is excited for the Choomack’s. Jim and Carole plan to travel; move nearer their children; and Jim wants to do some writing. Plans for saying goodbye are pending.
The session will contract with an interim pastor to help the congregation plan and work towards calling new pastor. Our Congregation is sad but excited about the legacy Jim is leaving us. In his 10 years here, he has been an active member of the Greensboro Community, a faithful church leader, preacher and friend. With Jim's leadership, we have added to our congregational family, strengthened our mission work and grown in our love for Jesus Christ.
Thank you and Godspeed, Jim Choomack
