Messiah’s next call meeting for a new pastor will be held directly after the Birthday Luncheon on November 5th, 2017 at approximately 12:45 pm. At this time, the congregation will be presented with a new list of candidates by Pastor Orlowski, our Circuit Counsellor, for us to consider.
In addition to Pastor Orlowski’s list of candidates, each member has the opportunity to put forward the name of a pastor that they consider to be a good candidate to fill our vacancy. Attached to this week’s Messenger is a form to be completed, in its entirety, by anyone who wishes to personally put forth the name of a pastor to be our new shepherd. Extra copies are available on the bulletin board in the narthex.
Please complete this form as soon as possible, and give it to any one of the members of your Call Committee, no later than Sunday October 22nd , 2017, so that the name can be given to Pastor Orlowski for consideration.
As directed by the Voters at the previous Call Meeting of September 17th, 2017, the names on the previous call list will also be on the new candidates list.
Please plan to attend this very important Voters’ Meeting.
Your Call Committee: Mike Emrich, Bruce Scheifele, Mara Verlis, Paul Hartig and Ameer Abdulla
