Reverend Norm Erlendson is the new Minister at the First Congregational Church. We welcome Norm and his wife Barbara to Stonington!

Norm and Barbara moved from Washington State to Connecticut in 2007. They have fallen in love with New England for its beauty, and especially its history. They enjoy traveling its back roads and visiting its small towns and villages. Norm has pastored Congregational Churches since 1990. He holds a Master of Arts in History from the University of Washington, and a Master of Arts in Christian Theology and Ethics from New College, Berkeley, California. He has a special interest in the history of New England Congregationalism and issues related to the church and social justice. He is excited about his new pastoral ministry at the First Congregational Church of Stonington. Norm is looking forward to becoming an active member of the Stonington/Westerly community.
