FROM THE ELDER BOARD...
Please continue to pray for your Elders as they work
through the budget process. Ask that our Lord's will for His Community
Church will be seen in the budget and that God's Kingdom will be blessed and
extended in this corner of His creation.
Have you had a family, couple, or individual on your mind whom you desire to
introduce to our church fellowship? This is a good time of the year to just
Minutes of the Elders Board Meeting of 5 November 2018 are available at the
visitor desk in the church foyer.
FROM THE PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE...
Continue to pray for the Committee. They are presently looking at a final top 5 candidates and preparing for the interviews. This is perhaps the most difficult part since the Committee is now reviewing in detail the candidates. Candidates will be contacted to determine availability and interest. There has been a sub-committee formed to prepare interview questions for candidates. Once these questions are agreed to and practiced by the Committee members, then an interview process using Skype will start. For those who are following this process with the “Knock Checklist,” the Committee is at checklist items 2, 8, 9, and 10. If you would like to follow the Committee, the Knock Checklists are at the visitor counter in the church foyer.
