Pastor Rich Tuttle To Catawba UMC

Since 2006, Rich Tuttle has served as our Pastor of Congregational Care.
In that time, he has demonstrated a rare gift for helping people navigate the most difficult seasons of life: grief, sickness, and family strife.
He excels at what people in the ministry call a “non-anxious presence” in people’s lives.

And now, as often happens in the United Methodist Church, he is moving on to assume pastoral leadership of Catawba United Methodist Church, an historic congregation located between Lake Norman and Hickory.

Rich’s last day with us was yesterday and his first Sunday of every-week-preaching-responsibility at Catawba will be July 4.

My friend Dennis Sult will take over our visitation ministry on an interim basis as we finalize the long term job description for pastoral care.
