The blessing of our Senior Minister Search Committee during worship on Sunday was a beautiful expression of your love and support. We have felt and appreciate your prayers as we begin our search process. Although you have not heard much from our committee yet, we have been diligently working to organize and prepare our search process. We have invested time in getting to know each other and the unique gifts of each member. We met with Ed Good, who chaired the last Senior Minister Search Committee, to learn from his experience as we develop our approach to this search process. We have an exciting journey in front of us!

During our church conference following worship on November 13, I will provide a report of our progress to the congregation. We recognize the importance of our work to the church, and we are committed to communicating openly and transparently during this process. We ask for your continued patience and prayers. Please be assured that we will communicate as often as possible.
We look forward to serving you, working with you, and listening to God as he leads our search.
