On Sunday, July 6, Kathy Chesney will be giving her first sermon as the new minister for the United Church in Philip and for the First Presbyterian Church of Interior.
"For many years I struggled and passed by the calling to be a pastor," said Chesney. "Finally I just couldn't say no anymore. Since, it has been great; there is no other word for it, even with the insane schedule." Even before that decision came in August of 2005, her schedule had been full.
Chesney was raised in Michigan.
