"SPEER-itual Moments"


By: Rev. Gary H. Speer

We now have the Search Committee in place. Be grateful for each one of these as they serve on your behalf in the coming months.

They have an initial meeting set with our Area Minister, Larry Ross, this Wednesday, and their work begins.
 
The first order: to call a transitional pastor...someone to be with you and help guide you through this time of change.
 
Then, their work will focus on calling a settled pastor to come and be with you.
 
This will take a while…it is not usually a quick task.
 
Pray for them.
 
They will keep you informed.
 
This is a wonderful group who I believe will work well together…be faithful in their task…praying together, and discerning God’s will.
 
And be grateful also for the help and support of our Area Minister…this is only a part of what he does, but helping a congregation call the one to be with them for a new future is no small thing.
 
But ultimately you will decide.
 
But I also hope that each one of you will be cognizant of God’s work among and with you as you move through this time of change and transition.
 
We aren’t done yet. We are about to begin the season of Lent on March 1, Ash Wednesday. We have this final journey to Easter to make, and then our time will come to an end shortly after that.
 
I hope you have circled Sunday, April 30, on your calendars, and that as many of you as possible will be here on that day.
 
Devotedly,
 
Gary
