From Susan Ranous:
I wanted to update everyone on my progress toward ordination in the United Methodist Church. Many of you may have heard that I was approved by the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry for commissioning at this year’s Annual Conference. It has been a long journey, which will not end with the commissioning. The journey started here at Baldwinsville FUMC where I felt the call to ordained ministry. I met with our own Staff Parish Committee and was approved by a Charge Conference as a candidate for ordained ministry. Since that time I have met at least once a year with the District Board of Ordained Ministry, and multiple times a year with my mentor, Rev. Rhonda Kouterick.
