The First Congregational Church, UCC of North Attleboro (affectionately known as the Oldtown Church) is proud to announce the return of one of their own to serve as their new pastor, the Rev. Kelly Kingman Thibeault.
"How appropriate that we begin our new journey in ministry together as we also begin our journey to Bethlehem in this season of Advent," said Rev. Thibeault.
Her first sermon as the new settled pastor of the First Congregational Church, in the Oldtown section of North Attleboro, will be Sunday, Nov. 28 at 10 a.m.
Rev. Thibeault grew up at the Oldtown Church where she was baptized, attended Sunday school, was confirmed, taught Sunday school, married her husband and was ordained. In 2001, with the encouragement of then pastor, Rev. Katrina Clinton, the support of her family and the congregation, Kelly obtained her Masters of Divinity degree in 2006 from Andover Newton Theological School. During her time in seminary she served as the student pastor of Union Evangelical Church, UCC in Hopedale. Since 2007, she has served as the Associate Conference Minister of the Rhode Island Conference, United Church of Christ, working for her denomination supporting their 31 churches in the state of Rhode Island.
Rev. Thibeault and her husband, Dan, have lived in the Attleboro area for more than 20 years; the last eight years in North Attleboro with their three children Abbey, Jane and Leo. Rev. Thibeault is very excited to be back serving in the local church and to be coming home to Oldtown!
