Christ United Methodist Church Pastor Chris Tiedeman will mark his fifth month with the Wabash church on Wednesday, Dec. 6, and is looking forward to the holiday season.

Tiedeman, a Noble County native, moved to Wabash with his wife Emily and three children from La Porte.

“I’ve been a pastor for 14 years,” he told The Paper of Wabash County. “In the United Methodist Church, the bishop appoints us (to churches to lead). So I was given a call by my district superintendent and told, ‘The bishop wants you to serve here,’ and as part of the arrangement that as we have as church and pastor, I go.

“My goal is to make sure that whatever this church does in the community, it is a reflection of God’s love for the community. That will play out in a lot of different ways and that is the overarching goal.”

Consolidation talk heats up

MCS board votes 'no' to consolidation

By David Fenker

NORTH MANCHESTER – In a unanimous 7-0 vote, the Manchester Community Schools board of school trustees declined pursuing countywide consolidation Tuesday night, Nov. 14.

Interim Superintendent Mike Pettibone introduced the matter during the board's new business, on the agenda as “Discuss letter form Community Foundation of Wabash County”.

“We had a lot of discussions in our meetings that this was about consolidation,” Pettibone said, referring to meetings with other principals and Community Foundation members.

“There's no question that phase two is about consolidation... [the foundation] asks the corporations who are considering consolidation to present a join proposal.”
