CIMARRON — The congregation of East Woods Presbyterian Church elected a new pastor on March 5. The Rev. Dr. Joyce Martin Emery will begin serving on March 13. Joyce served as the senior pastor at Salmon Creek United Methodist Church from 2013 to 2018. From there, she went to serve as an interim associate pastor at the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C., and at Bethany Presbyterian in Tacoma.
