all Committee Moving Forward
Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
At the December Congregational meeting, the Congregation established a Call Committee to work with the Synod on the search for a full time Pastor for Trinity. Members of the Call Committee include Jerry Boegler, David Cradlin, Margaret Fitzwilliam, Nancy Jacobson, Ana Nunes and Thor Nielsen.
The primary roles of the Call Committee are to update Trinity’s Ministry Site Profile, to Interview Candidates and Recommend a Candidate to the Council and Congregation. The Call Committee will keep the Council up to date on our progress, but works independently of the Council.
The Call Committee ”jumped right in”; meeting twice in December and plans to meet weekly for the next 6 to 8 weeks. The members understand the need to be faithful and to approach our work with open hearts, always grounding our work in prayer.
In December, the Committee met with Pastor Sarah Garrett Krey, Assistant to the Bishop for Mobility and Candidacy. We will be working closely with her throughout the process. The Committee selected Margaret Fitzwilliam as Chair who will be the contact for the Synod.
The Committee will communicate with the Congregation throughout the process. Please watch for updates in Tidings, Bulletins and Trinitarians. Please do not hesitate to reach out to a Committee member with questions.
We ask for the Congregation’s prayers and patience as we engage in this process of discernment and we joyfully look forward to finding a new pastor to walk alongside our Congregation.
Anchored in Christ, The Call Committee
