Welcome Our New Pastor, Rev Donna Lee Muise!


A Letter from Donna


We have not yet met, but June will be here before we know it! Prior to my arrival at FCC of Rochester, however, I want to introduce myself to you. So, you know what to expect:

I am the Rev Donna Lee Muise, and I live in Rochester, like many of you. After graduating with honors from Andover Newton Theological School, I have been an ordained pastor for 29 years.

After ordination, I have served churches in Massachusetts, Maine, and for the past nine years in New Hampshire. I’ve been a youth pastor, a settled pastor, a bridge pastor, and an Intentional Interim Pastor. As I write this letter to you, I am serving at First Congregational Church, UCC, of Wolfeboro, NH. We achieved the goal of calling a new settled pastor, who will step into leadership in the mid-May.

My first day among you will be Monday, June 3. Let me share with you the areas of ministry I will cover while I am with you. My assignment with you is a half-time position, approximately 20-25 hours per week. Within those hours I will be working in the church office Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings and some afternoons. I encourage you to stop in and introduce yourselves. My door is always open to you!

Another area I am eager to begin is pastoral visits in your home or in my church office if you prefer. I will also visit in area hospitals, nursing facilities, and the like. I am always available for emergencies.

Leading worship, writing services & liturgy, and preaching are my favorites. I enjoy being creative in worship from time to time. Singing and listening to hymns and anthems are a few of my favorite parts. I believe music makes the worship services an experience of God, of joy, of inspiration. I would love to hear what your favorite hymns are so I can put them into the service when they enhance the scriptures we are studying together.

Please stop into my office, attend worship services, and support other church events so that we can meet, have a chat, and exchange ideas. Whatever the time is that we will share ministry together, I promise that I will love and serve you to the best of my ability.

Rev Donna
