This is an exciting time in the life our congregation and we ask that you continue to pray for our Call Team and Pastor John as this next part of the call process moves forward.
As was mentioned in our Annual Meeting and at the Half-Yearly Update, a budget expense of $50,000 was planned for the Pastoral Call process. We appreciate your generous giving to support this process which includes salary, moving and housing expenses for a new Pastor. You can designate your giving by noting this is for the Pastoral Call Fund.
