As we reflect and say farewell to Catherine Foote and her 20-year ministry with us, we anticipate ministry support by an interim pastor who will be called soon. Looking beyond that interim ministry time, the Church Council has approved a new search and call committee. This committee will begin the usually months-long search for a new “settled” pastor. Committee members are: Anna Van Pelt, Margaret Stine, Ed Coleman, Mike Zevenbergen, Ellen Naden, Nadine Santo Pietro,Emily Morishima, Kathryn Robinson, Roberta “Berta” Hollowell (co-chair), and Royce Morrison (co-chair).
After meeting with Pacific Northwest Conference
Minister Mike Denton and Racial Justice Consultants Diane Schmitz and Cynthia MacLeod, the committee will begin updating our Church Profile. The Church Profile is a detailed, in-depth description of our church. It is the primary source of information for pastors seeking a new call. The Profile asks three broad areas of questions: Who is God Calling Us to Become? Who Are We Now? Who is Our Neighbor?
While the committee works through completing this document, look for opportunities to provide your thoughts, comments and questions. In the meantime, feel free to communicate with any committee members. Your thoughts and suggestions are valued.
