Ten months ago, the members of this church entrusted the Search Committee with the responsibility of prayerfully selecting a candidate for your approval. We gathered input from many of you as we assembled our Local Church Profile. We carefully reviewed the UCC Ministerial Profiles of 37 candidates; after checking references, we interviewed six candidates and reviewed more than 30 hours of sermon material. Following three rounds of interviews, with one being on-site, we unanimously selected—through prayer and mutual consent have found a candidate.
The members of our committee look forward to talking with you about our joyful interactions with the candidate. We hope you will make every effort to attend the Saturday night open house social where you will meet the candidate and their spouse in a more informal setting as well as the Sunday morning worship service and congregational meeting.
Saturday night, October 27, 5:00 p.m. All church open house social. All members of the church including children and youth are encouraged to participate in this opportunity to become acquainted with two wonderful people. Appetizers will be provided.
Sunday morning, October 28, 10:30 a.m. Worship. The candidate will conduct the worship service. Following the service, a congregational meeting will be held to hear a detailed report from the Search Committee, discuss the terms of the Call Agreement, and vote on the recommendation to call the candidate as our new pastor.
