Happy New Year 2018!
Ministry Teams are forming. If you wish to be part of one, please let us know. We will have clipboards to sign up in the sanctuary for the month of January. Teams are starting to meet, but new faces and ideas are always welcome!
We are organized under 3 large ministry categories: “Inside” ministries of worship, nurture and community. Our “Outside Ministry Team” will be dreaming about how to fulfill our ministry to our local community and beyond to each, meet and serve our neighbors near and far away. There is the important work we are calling “Nuts and Bolts”, the people, money and mortar (building) that make our ministry happen; there is always a need to help us with these important ministries. Watch for the clipboards to sign up!
Our Annual Meeting is on Sunday, January 28 at a meal following worship. Please plan to attend as we continue to review our ministry and look forward to our future.
The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) has had its organizational meeting and is getting to work on the important task of calling a new pastor. First project is the “Ministry Information Form”, or MIF, the church’s resume’. This will go “live” online through the Church Leadership Connection of the PCUSA to be matched with pastors’ “Personal Information Forms”, their resume’s. This is a detailed document taking some time to finalize. It is then approved by both the session and the presbytery’s committee on ministry. From time to time the PNC will report to us on their status. Stay tuned.
