The vestry of Christ Church Gilbertsville is happy to announce that we have unanimously called Father William Lytle to be our new rector. Father Bill will be joining us along with his wife Rebecca and 4 children. The entire family will be joining us for their first Sunday at Christ Church next Sunday, November 29th. Father Bill will be leading us in worship on Sundays beginning next week and will complete his move into the rectory throughout the month of December with the goal to be fully moved in before Christmas.


Father Bill is currently serving as the Christian Education Director at St. George's Episcopal Church, Clifton Park. He was ordained in the Episcopal Church this past April, having previously served as rector at a small Anglican Church in rural Pennsylvania. During his 2 years at St. George's, Father Bill has been actively involved in all aspects of Christian education, while also leading the praise band, managing the church's online offerings, and supporting the rector fully.


Thank you for your prayers during the entire search process. We ask your continued prayers for a safe and easy move for the Lytle family.


We are delighted to have the entire Lytle family joining us at Christ Church. God has good things in store for Christ Church and the village of Gilbertsville! We are blessed that God has called Father Bill and his family to our congregation.
