Two local churches will hold services tomorrow to install new pastors.
East Christian Church Disciples, 525 South Coy Rd., Oregon, will install the Rev. David Zerby as pastor during an outdoor worship service tomorrow.
Mr. Zerby, a former associate pastor of Pilgrim United Church of Christ, is a captain in the Ohio Army National Guard and recently returned from active duty in Afghanistan as a military chaplain.
Approved as East Christian Church's pastor by unanimous vote at a congregational board meeting in June, Mr. Zerby will succeed the Rev. A.W. Farnsworth, who is retiring after three years as pastor.
Waterville Community Church, 8217 Dutch Rd., will install the Rev. Joe Legnel as lead pastor at an 11 a.m. service.
Mr. Lengel has served as a volunteer at the church and in 2001 was named youth and associate pastor.
