Anne O'connor

Interim Pastor: Anne O'Connor

Anne is the interim pastor for our congregation charged with preparing us to receive our permanent pastor. She will preach and work with church staff, leaders, and church members to envision and move into the new future God has planned for us.

Anne believes that God is already at work around us and has an amazing future planned for the Farmington UMC. “We need to open ourselves to where God is working and join in.”

Anne grew up in Ohio and after graduating from Miami University moved to Rochester to work at Kodak. She worked there for ten years before leaving to pursue God’s call to pastoral ministry. Anne is a graduate of Colgate Rochester Divinity School. Anne retired in 2018 after serving as a pastor for 30 years, 13

years at Walworth and Zion-West Walworth and 17 years at Aldersgate in Greece.

She is married to Tom who joined FUMC in 2019. They have two daughters and two grandsons. Anne continues to be amazed by God’s extraordinary love that has no bounds. She enjoys reading, hiking, and hanging out with friends.
