What’s Happening

We are currently accepting nominations for the Pastor Search Team to consist of 5 members from the congregation. One, but not more than two, of these people will be from the CAT. Please talk to the person you’re prayerfully considering prior to nominating. Nominations will close February 19, 2017.

There are needs for volunteers in many areas of the church. Please see the needs listed. If there are any other ministries not listed, please email Amy Thatcher.

The Transition Team is meeting on a regular basis and will address questions or concerns in person, via email, or via phone. If you’d like to ask a question, please email any of the team members listed above.

We are working to increase communication to and from the Transition Team. Thank you for your patience and understanding through this process.

We will be starting the deacon election process soon. Please begin to prayerfully consider men for this service.
