A Message from our new Pastor Dianne
Dear People of God at Harwich UMC,
I am looking forward to getting to know each of you this summer. This new normal will be an adventure for all of us together. I am also looking forward to being in ministry with you to our Cape Cod and global community.
I was ordained in the Southern New England Conference and served churches in Eastern Massachusetts [Spencer being the furthest West!] after graduating from Andover Newton Theological School in 1985. Over the years the church has certainly changed its boundaries as our conference expanded. The church is always being made new by the dynamic and vital Holy Spirit meeting the current age.
I have been a music teacher in Barnstable and served as a musician in several denominations. I have a love of the Worship experience as a way to celebrate God’s great power for positive change. My doctorate is in Social Justice from Boston University and I know that The Kingdom of God is God’s challenge for us today and every day.
The opportunity to serve as your pastor is a blessing to me and I anticipate we will grow together. I hope you will get to know my family as well. My daughter Nicole and her daughter Angie are in Medford, MA. My son Jean-Philippe lives in the North End and works in Boston. My husband is Gerald [Gerry with a G] Beaudet [Not Mr. Carpenter!!] and enjoys gardening.
Yours in the love of Christ,
