Special Meeting Scheduled June 19 for New Pastor Call and Vote

To all God’s beloved, who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 

This is how Paul addressed the Romans. This is how I wish to address my wonderful Faith Family at this exciting time. On behalf of the Call Committee and the Council, I want to invite all of you celebrate as we move forward in this interim time.

After much hard work and interviewing, the Call Committee voted unanimously to present Pastor Ben Colahan as a candidate to the council and we as a council then voted unanimously to bring his name forward to you.

According to Synod guidelines we then need to notify you and set a special congregational meeting. Our only agenda item will be to discuss and vote for this candidate and if approved by a 2/3 vote, send the call to him.

So I have the honor, now, to be notifying you! The date has been set for Sunday June 19, immediately after our service we will gather together to have a special Call meeting, to discuss and vote to call this candidate to be our regularly called permanent Pastor. Pastor Katy Grindberg, (Assistant to Bishop Mark Holmerud,) will be preaching at our service and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this process.

Come then, let us praise our gracious God, and celebrate, and dance with each other into this new life together.
Your council president,
Sherrill Heinz
