October Pastor News

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you for your suggestions for persons that you believe will make good Transition Team members.  I received a total of 109 names!  That’s a wonderful testament to the wonderful people who ARE Christ’s Church in this place.

As indicated, it is important for the Transition Team to be representative of the makeup of the church as a whole.  I asked four people to assist me in taking your suggestions and putting together a list of potential members of the Team.  Joe Hester (Deacon Chair), David Jordan (Church Council Chair), Jane Lewis (Personnel Chair), and Ray Parker (Church Moderator) met with me and worked with me in coming up with that list.  I am in the process of meeting with these members explaining to them what will be required for them to serve.  I ask you to be in prayer with me that God will be at work in the lives of all those involved so that we may discern God’s will in this matter.

Thank you for the ways you continue to welcome Dianne and me.  We feel blessed to have the opportunity to share life and ministry with you.
