Laurie Photo 3


Rev. Laurie Hill was ordained in 1990 into the Presbyterian Church USA but in 2001, her ordination was changed to the United Church of Christ.  She has served 16 congregations as an interim pastor and 2 congregations as a settled pastor.  She is our new “designated pastor” at Community Church which means she will do the interim work with our congregation and unlike a strictly interim pastor, the congregation may elect her as their settled pastor in one year.  Rev. Hill is married to Rev. Steve Hill, a Presbyterian USA pastor who serves as an interim pastor.  She has two married daughters.  One lives in Decatur and has a school aged son.  The other lives in Houston and will soon have a daughter.  Pastor Laurie enjoys walking and hiking, reading, watching movies and playing games.  She especially enjoys spending time with her grandson.  She was the interim pastor at our church nine years ago and is happy to be back.  We hope this next year will be filled with blessings of hope, joy, and love to reflect God’s presence in Morton.
