- Your council members reviewed the work of the Ministry Areas (Worship, Fellowship and Care, Youth and Faith Development, Mission and Outreach, and Property). to discuss the progress we’ve made making connections with our auxiliaries. Our hope is that all our groups will have someone on council eager to hear from them and carry their needs to council. During these discussions we heard of several new ideas being considered by the councillors. We also identified aspects that we may be missing.
- Council approved extending the contract with Rev. Andrew till December 31, 2018. The Synod Convention elected Bishop Larry for another term. Cheryl was elected as one of the synod’s delegates to the 2019 National Convention. Wayne did a great job of chairing his first convention. Carolyn served on the Worship Committee for the convention and all appreciated the great variety of worship. Allyn was named the first recipient of the Stephen Wildfang Leadership Award for the synod. Everyone was very impressed and touched by the keynote speaker, Anna. It is hoped that her 3 sessions might become available on the website. The Call Committee received a nomination recently. The name has been forwarded to the Bishop’s office. It’s good to have some possibility in the works. Bishop Larry will forward this nomination through the nominee’s bishop for that person to consider.
- If you know of a pastor you think would be a good fit for us, complete the “Nomination Form” and hand it to one of the Call Committee members.
