A Note from Our Interim Pastor

We are in the middle of Stewardship season and we are exploring how God calls us to live, love and give generously. I hope you have been enjoying the testimonies from our church members. One way we are exploring this theme is also through the Mission Study Committee- the committee tasked during this interim season to discern who we are as a church and where God is calling us in the next 5 years. Over the next six months, you will be asked to join this committee in discerning God’s direction. We will do this through small group discussion sessions, surveys and intergenerational activities.

Each method will allow the Mission Study Committee to know better the makeup of our church, the role of our church in the community and where we believe God is calling us to go. After all the data is gathered and a plan is formulated, this committee will come back to the congregation to present the findings.

We will use this material to discern and call your next installed pastor. This is a season of big questions and faithful discoveries, and I invite you to join us in the process. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Susan Henderson, the chair, or to me.

I am proud to be your pastor during this season!
