Last Chance for a Voice in Pastoral Discernment (before the recommendation goes to the Elders)

Last Chance for a Voice in Pastoral Discernment (before the recommendation goes to the Elders)

To our church community —

As the discernment process is winding down and the community
conversations are done, there are still a few days to send in your
opinion to the following questions:

“Does the congregation of Old First Reformed United Church of Christ want to call Reverend Michael W. Caine to be their settled Pastor?”

and

“Does the congregation of Old First Reformed United Church of Christ
support Reverend Michael W. Caine, in both time and resources, to continue the revitalization process and continue the work started these past three years?”

The second question is in response to the Epsitle from September 13, 2012, where Pastor Caine outline his commitment and vision to our church. This topic was discussed at the community meetings held earlier this month.

If you want to register your opinion, please contact me. It can be a simple “Yes,” “Yes, but…,” or “No because….” and all responses can be elaborated upon if needed as well. My contact info. is in the directory (on-line in the members’ area) or you can get if from the church office.

The final report is due to the Elders on Monday, October 29, so please
feel welcome to send in your comments in order that I can fully
represent the voices of our congregation in this matter.

With regards, Susan Hutton DeAngelus
