Centralia United Methodist Church welcomed a new minister Monday. Pastor Vangie Rand was appointed by Bishop Elaine Stanovsky to serve the Centralia church during the PNW Annual Conference in June 2019.   

Pastor Rand previously served as associate pastor at Haller Lake in North Seattle, and most recently at Oroville UMC and Tonasket Community Church. 

Her work includes a summer mission at a church in Mexico City, and a year in Budapest, Hungary where she taught English in a high school. 

Pastor Rand can be reached at 360-736-7311.
