Pastor celebrates 10 years at WC church
Rev. Craig Blaufuss has completed a decade of ministry to the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Webster City. He and his wife Vicki began ministry at the church Oct. 1, 2010. The congregation celebrated with a “cupcake walkthrough” after the outdoor service Sunday morning, Sept. 27.
In addition to his pastoral duties at First Congregational, Pastor Craig has taken an active role in the community. He is involved with the Webster City summer lunch program, Warm Hearts, Warm Homes, and Salvation Army Bellringing Campaign. He’s a 9-year member of Noon Kiwanis Club; 7-year member and now chair of the Hamilton County Crime Stoppers Board; member and chair of the Webster City Ministerial Association; 5-year member of the Advisory Council for North Central RSVP of Iowa; member of the Northwestern Association Committee on Ministry; Bible study leader at local nursing homes (in non-COVID times); National Synod delegate; and much-welcomed maker of tasty fudge.
Vicki has taught at Iowa Central Community College and volunteers with RSVP. She also serves on the church’s Christian Education Board and helps lead the after school youth program. Vicki serves as Pastor Craig’s unpaid but highly appreciated co-worker in ministry. Cards may be sent to their home at 705 South Street Webster City.
