Call Committee update!

Greetings from the Call Committee!

We are at a very exciting and anxious time in the Call process.  I know we are all ready to move onto the next chapter for Shepherd.

We have been planning on how best to introduce our candidate to the congregation. We believe we have a plan that should provide enough exposure.

Based off the priorities we listed in our Ministry Site Profile (MSP) that the Transition Task Force had put together, we will be having the candidate meet with some small groups later this month (Worship committee, music director, church secretary, youth group, KOK board, and Council).

On July 17 for the congregation at large, we will be using between services for our candidate to lead a devotional and have some Q&A time. Our plan is to have him attend both services and be available.

If all goes to schedule (and with Lutherans this could be a big problem!), we are looking at holding a Congregational Meeting at the end of the month (July 31).

We are blessed to be able to see the end of the road on this journey!

So mark your calendars for July 17 between services to meet our candidate.

As always, if you have questions please contact myself (see secretary Tammy for contact info) or any member of the Call Committee if you have questions or concerns.

Thanks for your patience and continue to pray for us.

Peace,
Chris Reger, Call Committee
