Inge E Whittemore

I was born in Haarlem, The Netherlands and grew up in both Winnipeg MB, Canada and Grand Rapids, Mi.  I attended Calvin College for a period of time and then went to work as a banker in 1978.  I attained an associates degree in financial administration at Davenport University during my early banking years and worked for Comerica Bank for my entire 38 year career. The last 25 years I was a Vice President for the SE Grand Rapids market area.

I met Ray Whittemore (dec'd 2013) in 1976 and we were married in 1980 when I was 24 years old and I became a full time co-parent with him to his three teenage daughters.  They then married and made us happy grandparents 6 times and since Ray's passing there are now 3 great-grandchildren.

I attended the Local Pastor Licensing school in 2016 and was quickly honored with a wonderful offer of a position at East Nelson UMC.

I am happy to be here!

New Member Orientation

Have you ever thought about joining East Nelson Church? Then you are invited to a new member orientation on Sunday, October 15 after worship.

What is membership you ask? Church membership, is not about “additional requirements.” It’s about this church taking specific responsibility for you and you for this church. It’s about putting on and embodying the church universal and living our faith in Christ out loud.

This orientation is designed for:
· Explorers: People wanting to know about Methodism.
· Attenders: All who wish to become members.
· Transfers: People coming from other churches (United Methodist or not).
· New Christians: those wishing to profess their faith and be baptized.

Attending this initial meeting does not obligate you to join the church. It will provide you with information to make a decision about membership.

If this sounds great to you please attend an initial meeting in the KidzKlub room directly after worship on October 15. I look forward to seeing you there!
