Grace Presbyterian Church on Deerfoot Parkway, which merged with Eastminster Presbyterian Church in May, has a new name.
The name of the new church will be Cahaba Springs Presbyterian Church, assuming the merger is completed and approved.
Previous interim minister at Grace Presbyterian, Terry Newland, said the hope is that the merger and name will be official by Oct. 1. The approval process is being guided by the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley of the Presbyterian Church.
The church’s new pastor is the Rev. Shelaine Bird, chosen by the two congregations and approved by the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley. Bird was most recently transitional pastor at Chapel in the Pines Presbyterian in Hoover.
