Uriah Williams, Pastor


Pastor Uriah Williams is a new resident to Shawano, WI. Though he was born in Merrill, he grew up all over the country with his family as his dad followed his own pastoral calling. Peace UCC is his first settled pastorate after a variety of pastoral experiences through internships, supply preaching, and temporary licensures. He currently attends seminary at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and is now in his second year of the Master of Divinity in UCC Studies program at UTS. In his free time, Uriah enjoys hiking, baking, and playing board/card games with his fiancé, Emma Magee, as well as playing with his dog Russell and reading non-theological books for a change of pace! His favorite biblical passage which also influences his outlook on ministry is Ecclesiastes 3:1 “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”

William Meyer, Sexton

It’s me, W.E. “William or Bill” Meyer. Lifetime member after 79 years. I don’t move as fast but get the job done with help from friends. Over 30 years as Scoutmaster of Church Troop 35 producing a number of Eagles, two of them still members. Chairing the Fair Stand also over 30 years. I enjoy working for and with people of all ages.

I spent 8 years in the Air Force, 22 years at the Shawano Post Office and 20 years driving the library Bookmobile. Back in the day I loved to fish, hunt, bowl, play golf and camp. Not so much anymore. I take a lot of pictures and if possible will help out who or wherever I can. I love and have a great family!
