Elizabeth G. has agreed to serve this year as our Stewardship Director. And Grant F. has accepted the appointment as Assistant Treasurer. With those two positions filled, the ad hoc Discernment Ministry Team has found leaders for all of our elected or appointed roles.
All the SLGs and Ministry Teams have spaces for anyone who wishes to be involved. And the church encourages every person in this community – whether members or not – to find a place to serve at church (as well as to think of themselves as “servants” in the other places of their life too)…
And already, last Sunday, after worship, one could see new leaders working together as we make inevitable transitions. Changes in leadership usually bring steep learning curves, but also new insights, relationships and leaders into new experiences.
This Sunday, we will thank Adam, our outgoing Treasurer, Gerry, our outgoing Financial Secretary; Jackie, who will no longer be serving as an active Elder; and Yajeh, who has finished her service as the Christian Education Director.
We will also be ordaining three new Elders: Greta S., Jonathan A., Kathy S.
As well, we will install all of our leaders for 2015.
