North San Juan United Methodist Church greets new pastor

Pastor Patty Inis

The congregation of the North San Juan United Methodist Church on Flume Street in North San Juan has greeted a new pastor, Patty Inis.

Inis started her career over 20 years ago in Alaska, preaching in a coffee shop, the only space available.

Her relaxed style and the guitar and voice of husband Glenn Inis was enthusiastically received.

Her message Sunday, July 19, was of transformation, and it looks as though she is well on her way to renewing the North San Juan church into a vital voice for the community.

The North San Juan United Methodist Church has almost completed a physical transformation .

The church is one of the longest continuously operating churches in California, established in 1856.

The renovation was started by John Lee and family, working first on the foundation. More concerned people stepped in, and now the transformation is almost complete.

The simple white church with bell tower, on the hill, above the town is thought by many to be a good example of one of America’s greatest contributions to world architecture.

Services are Sundays at 9 a.m.
