The Rev. Shannan Vance Ocampo, preaching. In January of this year, Shannon began as Albany Presbytery’s Transitional Presbyter, and so she shares our building and we see her in the hallways.  We welcome Shannan leading in worship as we come to the end of our own “transitional” time at First United.
