The local church elders (Ron Stansell, Gail Hutchinson, Bob Hampton, Ron Woodward, Julie Anderson, Hank Helsabeck, and Dave Woolsey), joined by Interim Pastor Dick Sartwell, met for a full day on Tuesday for prayer and discussion to outline a process for the creation of a pastoral search committee toward the goal of having a new lead pastor recommended and approved by the congregation for service to begin July 1, 2018. Members of the search committee will be published in next week’s Friday Focus after the elders have secured the agreement of each proposed committee member.
At the same time the search committee begins its work, the elders will be planning group activities open to all those of the congregation who would like to participate in a related process of rewriting our NFC Mission and Vision statements and clarifying “who we are as a church.” From week to week, watch for a box in the newsletter that looks like the one containing this notice. You’ll see developments in the search process and suggestions for prayer related to it.
Pray: For a sense of calling and leading for those invited to consider being on the search committee. And pray for the elders as they begin to implement the process
