Please join the congregation Sunday, Aug. 26th, at 11 a.m., following the 2nd service, to vote on the recommendation of the Call Committee to call Pastor Elizabeth Hoium as Associate Pastor for Faith Formation. Read about the call process and a personal note from the candidate here.
Please extend a warm PoP welcome to Pastor Ruth Sorenson-Prokosch, our new pastor of Visitation and Congregation Care, who will provide pastoral care to those in need and will be the ministry liaison to Senior Ministries.
Here is an update from the committee working to identify our new Visitation & Congregational Care Pastor. Candidates have met with Pastor Peter and will be with the committee soon.
What is “faith formation?” What’s the difference between a Pastor and a Deacon? How long will the call process take? Listed here are responses to some of the most common questions we’ve been receiving about the call and selection processes for our two new pastoral leaders.
You’ve been hearing the phrase “faith formation” a lot lately. It has roots that run deep within the broader Church. Terms like “Christian education” and “spiritual development” feel too limited in describing what the church is called to do. Forming faith is something that is just as important for 70-year olds as it is for 7-year olds.
The task of calling a pastor or deacon belongs to our congregation. As members of the call committee, we want to invite all members to participate to some degree in the process of calling our next pastor. Included here is a form for you to submit your nominations directly to the committee.
