June 8, 2017

On Thursday, June 8, Rev. Shana Johnson, Illinois South Conference Minister, met with the interim ministry team to discuss the next steps for creating our church profile.  Rev. Johnson was extremely complimentary of our process to date, and told us that she has been holding us up as a model for other churches in the search process.

On June 15, we will begin the formal process of “filling in the blanks” for our profile.  This should take several weeks.  We hope to have the profile completed and ready to submit to the conference no later than the end of July.  Once our profile is complete, we will have copies in the library for any members of the congregation who wish to view it.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers as we continue on this journey to seek our next settled pastor.

Since Rev. Koepcke arrived in September, we have been working on the protocol for our next steps which will, ultimately, lead to calling a settled pastor.  Following the successful work of the Interim Search Committee, which bought Rev. Robert to us, an Interim Ministry Team was formed.  This team includes some members of the original Interim Search Committee as well as new members.  The Interim Ministry Team includes Sherry Davinroy, Donna Davis, Annette Eckert, Bill Enyart, Roger Henke, Rev. Koepcke, Tina Lake-Hopper, Sandy Ritter, Sandy Wagner, Lee-Allison Wilson, and Steve Suess, chair.
