Introducting Rev. Ann Beaty

In November of 2013, the Executive Council voted to hire an Executive Assistant and a part-time clergy to fill the position of the Associate Minister. I am delighted to introduce Rev. Ann Beaty, who will be filling the clergy position for one year. It is hoped that during this year the congregation will have a better sense of what is needed in the permanent Associate Minister position regarding duties and time.

Ann moved to Madison about a year ago from Austin, TX. She is an ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. Ann served Tarrytown United Methodist Church in Austin, TX as Senior Associate Pastor for 23 years. In her position at Tarrytown her ministries included Spiritual Nurture, Adult Spiritual Formation, Worship, Contemplative Ministries and Pastoral Care. Since moving to Madison, she has been doing some part-time work with First United Methodist and Cress Funeral Services. 

Ann’s partner, Carol Kreuscher, DMA, is a professional singer and voice teacher. Living in Madison is re-connecting them both with their mid-west roots and they are enjoying the changing seasons (yes…even winter!). They love animals, good books, and meeting new friends.

Ann will begin her ministry with us March 1st. We look forward to having her on staff and I hope you will take a moment to introduce yourself and welcome her into the First Congregational community.
