Once the Cottage Meetings were completed in February, the Transition Team (John Strang, Carol Tucek, Donna Swift, and Scott Simpson) began meeting to create the report that is being distributed today. Many thanks to this faithful, hard-working group, who met at least ten times, often for three hours or more per meeting, to sort through hundreds of comments from the Cottage Meetings and summarize them for us. As you can see, their report is quite insightful and will help our Call Process tremendously! According to our Constitution and ByLaws, the Church Planning Council is charged with appointing a Call Committee. The following people were approved this past week as forming the Call Committee:
Debra Beck, Tom Christensen, Bill May, Angie Rodriguez, Harold Rodriguez, Randy Steinbeck, Brian Warfel, Tammy Weidner, Jodi Whitt
Only three names were nominated by congregation members during the open nomination period. These names are: Rev. Keith Bowman, Jr, Joliet, IL Rev. Darrell Stuehrenberg, Ft. Myers, FL Rev. Billy Brath, Orlando, FL Rev. James Weist, Lake Worth, FL These names will be passed along to the Call Committee and then on to the District President. The next step is a Voters Meeting on Sunday, April 23rd, in which we will discuss, perhaps tweak, and then adopt the Cottage Meeting Report and charge the Call Committee to seek our new pastor. Please plan now to attend this meeting.
