DATES OFCONGREGATIONAL PRE-CALL MEETING & CALL MEETING
A congregational Pre-Call meeting will be held on the main floor of the church THIS 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.
THIS CALL MEETING BY THE VOTERS HAS NOW BEEN OFFICIALLY SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, JULY 22, 7:00 P.M. ON THE MAIN FLOOR. Either District President Jensen or Circuit Pastor Schultz will lead the voters in calling from a list of candidates prepared by the District President.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PASS THE WORD that St. Paul’s continues to live stream services for those who may not yet be ready or able to attend in-person worship. We understand concerns about recent “spikes” of the virus, and respect the different choices our members make. Do not hesitate to wear a mask to church if you so wish. Along with sanitizing between services and common sense distancing, we want those who choose to attend services to feel as safe as possible.
