CONGREGATIONAL PRE-CALL MEETING
A congregational Pre-Call meeting will be held on the main floor of the church on Wednesday, July 15, 7:00 p.m. This Pre-Call meeting is open to all of our members, men and women. The purpose of the meeting is for the District President, Pastor Mike Jensen, to hold a Bible study on the Divine Call, then to receive input from the members on the needs of the congregation going forward so he can proceed to formulate a Call list of men for a future Call meeting. Recognizing that the pastoral ministry is not a “job” or a “hiring,” but a Divine Call from the Holy Spirit through the congregation of believers, we ask the Holy Spirit to guide the process. (As is often customary, in order not to inhibit free conversation, your current pastor will intentionally not attend this congregational meeting.) The actual Call meeting will be a Voters Meeting, not a congregational meeting. It will be scheduled by mutual agreement of our leaders and the District President and/or the Circuit pastors who may act on his behalf.
COPIES OF OUR SHUT-IN LIST are on the table in the street-level entry. Many cannot be visited at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please keep them in your prayers, and where possible, perhaps give them a phone call of encouragement.
PASTORAL VISITATIONSNursing homes and hospitals are still restricting regular access at this time. For the safety of everyone and for the protection of our shut-ins, usual pastoral visits will be delayed. In urgent circumstances, do not hesitate to phone the pastor (486-2754) and he will be happy to minister to you on a personal basis.
