Rev. Jeanette Cooper Hicks grew up in a Roman Catholic family, where faith and spirituality played a central role in her life. Her first call was to teaching elementary and then college students. God had plans, which lead her to seminary and ordained ministry. A life-long learner and avid reader,  she studied at Vassar College, Western Connecticut State, Union Theological Seminary, Louisville Theological Seminary and Boston University Theological Seminary.  She is a native of Philadelphia and married into the Navy which moved her family around the country, as she served at Saint Matthews UMC in Louisville, Trinity UMC in NC, East Parish Church in MA, and The United Churches of Durham in CT.  She became our pastor at Westbrook Congregational Church in the fall of 2022. In addition to congregational ministry, Pastor Jeanette is a certified Spiritual Director and Hospice volunteer.  She loves to feed people, to travel, take long walks, and go to live concerts. She and her husband, Al, have four children and a wonder-dog, Jack. They live in the shoreline of Connecticut and often have a house full of folks.
