On Sunday, October 4, we met in a church conference following both morning services. This meeting was called to act on a recommendation from our deacons to continue the current Sunday morning schedule (9:00 a.m. Celebration, 10:15 a.m. Sunday school, 11:15 a.m. Connexion) for the foreseeable future. The motion passed with 89% voting in its favor. We extend a sincere “thank you” to all who participated in this process through listening sessions, small group conversations, formal feedback, and voting in the church conference.
This vote also helps clarify the direction for our search committee as they identify an additional member of our ministerial team. Regardless of the outcome of this Sunday’s vote, the plan was to hire an additional member of our ministerial team. The decision regarding scheduling, however, had a direct impact on the exact job description of that position. With the vote being finalized, the search committee will resume their work this week. Please continue to pray for them as they seek the right individual that God is leading to serve on our staff.
