White Rock Presbyterian Church

White Rock Presbyterian Church greets you and welcomes you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

From the Pastor

Mary Ann BanningWhite Rock Presbyterian Church is a place where everyone is welcome in worship. Each individual or family is warmly welcomed and invited to feel at home in their search for a deeper relationship with the risen Christ. Here people think about their faith, feel the meaning of their faith through prayers and music, and are empowered and strengthened to live their faith beyond the doors of the church building.

WRPC CrossI am delighted to be the temporary pastor here while the congregation searches for their next called and permanent pastor. I have been a Presbyterian pastor for 27 years in large church and smaller church settings, both suburban and rural. I have had the opportunity to minister with many wonderful people in New York state, New Jersey, Colorado, Ohio, Indiana, and now my favorite state of New Mexico.

A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, I also have earned degrees in painting from the University of Kansas (B.F.A.) and the State University of New York in Buffalo (M.F.A.). I have a lifelong love of hiking in the mountains, probably because I began life in Bozeman, Montana. I grew up in a fishing family, and so have gone fishing most everywhere there are fish to catch. My two grown children live in Maine and Florida (both wonderful places to visit), and I have one grandchild.

I hope that I will see you in worship, at a fellowship event, or as a participant in the many mission activities that this congregation supports with their dollars and their presence.

Blessings to you in the name of Christ,

Pastor Mary Ann Banning
