Members and Friends of Starr Presbyterian Church:

It is with great pleasure that your Session announces to the congregation that Rev. Angela Ryo has been accepted as an interim part-time pastor for Starr Presbyterian Church starting in January 2021.  Pastor Angela’s appointment is intended to provide ongoing pastoral support for Starr while the search continues to find and recruit a permanent pastor for the shared pastor position that has been put forward by the pastor search committee.  

Pastor Angela is not a stranger to us at Starr.  She has been in our pulpit, participated in recorded sermons, and has served as moderator for our Session.  Through our agreement with Kirk in the Hills, she will be expanding her support to Starr by serving as our head of staff, along with a host of other responsibilities.

Sunday in-person worship services at Starr will begin again starting on January 31, 2021.  Covid safety precautions remain in place at the church.

Best wishes to all as we start a new year!  And please remember to take all needed precautions to protect yourselves and your families so that we can all remain together in service to our Lord.


Richard Smith

Clerk of Session
