Upper Lake Community United Methodist Church welcomes new pastor


UPPER LAKE, Calif. – The congregation at the Upper Lake Community United Methodist Church has welcomed a new pastor.

Rev. Bob C. Green has assumed the position of pastor at the church, bringing a broad range of skills and strengths to his work shepherding the congregation of the Methodist church, located at 604 Clover Valley Road, on the corner of First Street and Clover Valley Road.

He graduated from Pacific School of Religion in 1982 and was ordained in June of that year at University Christian Church in Berkeley.

While there, he served as an assistant pastor from 1980 until 1984, at which time he received a call to be the senior pastor.

He retired from that position in July 2000 and was called to a three-year interim position at Garfield Park Christian in Santa Cruz.

Upon leaving Santa Cruz, he and his wife Diana spent seven years touring the USA full-time in their motorhome. They now live in Lakeport.

Prior to entering the ministry he served in the U.S. Marine Corp and then 19 years as an Idaho State Police officer.

He and Diana have been married 59 years and have three sons with six grandchildren between them.

Their eldest son is a missionary in Bogota, Colombia; the middle one is a pilot for American Airlines; and the youngest works as a stationery engineer for Kaiser Permanente in Oakland.

The church's motto is “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.” All are welcome to any and all of the Sunday services, which commence at 11 a.m., or any of the many special services held throughout the year.
