Pastoral Search Update
In the 1930’s Jerome Kern wrote a popular song about perseverance called “Pick Yourself Up” which included the lyrics - “Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start all over again.” This is exactly what our wonderful Search Team is planning to do. They met this past week to regroup and then they updated the Church Council at our meeting on Sunday, August 13. While everyone on the Team is eager to move ahead, two members will have to step down due to personal and work or school conflicts. We are deeply indebted to Laura Arnesen and Therran Adams for their dedication, wisdom and significant gift of their time.
So, the remaining Team of four (Doug Stoehr, Jada Munro, Chrissy Rivers and Scott Bennett) is looking to add two new members. Search Team members must be church members and are approved by the Church Council. If you feel called to serve on this vital ministry, have questions, or want to meet with the Search Team, please contact Doug Stoehr as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org or 496-3249). Serving as a member of the Search Team requires a commitment of faith, time, confidentiality, openness and consensus building. Please keep these dedicated people on the Search Team in your prayers.
