Appointment Letter

To the People at Coburg United Methodist Church,

It is Bishop Stanovsky’s intention to appoint Rev. Daryl Blanksma to the Whitney United Methodist Church effective July 1, 2021. I realize that this move is unexpected. I also realize that it is difficult to imagine a pastoral transition in these times of COVID. As you know, such moves are not uncommon in our itinerant system. I am excited about the opportunities Daryl will have in his home state of Idaho. I hope you will take time during these remaining months to express your appreciation to Pastor Daryl for all of his work and pray for him during this transition.

Please be aware that the Bishop and Cabinet are holding the Coburg church in our prayers as we discern a future path and next appointment. It is my hope that I will have an appointment to announce very soon. For now, celebrate the time you have had with Pastor Daryl.
