Church Newsletter: May 5, 2023

On April 19th, the Senior Pastor Call Committee met with District President Stuckwisch and completed the Congregational Self Study. The Committee is working on putting together a summary of the Self Study, which we will share with the congregation. In terms of next steps, President Stuckwisch is reviewing the nominations submitted by our congregation and is gathering additional information and names for the official call list. We ask for your continued prayers over the coming months as we work with our Circuit Visitor, Pastor Good, to review the call list. We will continue to provide periodic updates on the process.
