March 2015

 Your Call Committee met on February 2nd to continue its prayerful preparations to call our next Pastor. If you recall we had a major snow storm February 1st into the 2nd so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a number of our “joys” that we shared as we started our meeting was for shoveled driveways and plowed streets.  

During the evening we assembled the Prayer Squares that Pastor Powell blessed and the Call Committee began to distribute earlier this month. We have enough so that every member of Holy Trinity receives one – if we missed you, please contact the Church office and we will get one out to you as soon as possible. Let the Prayer Squares be a constant reminder to you that the Call Committee and Holy Trinity need your prayers. Pray that the Call Committee will be receptive to what the Holy Spirit has to say as we move forward in the Call Process. Pray for Holy Trinity members that they will be receptive to where the Holy Spirit leads them while completing the Pastoral Search Survey.

This leads us to the Pastoral Search Survey itself. The survey process began in February and there are still many ways and opportunities to participate. The survey is a crucial element in the Call Process. Without it, the Synod and the Call Committee would be like a ship without a rudder or a map – no idea of where we wanted to go, no idea how to get there and no way to steer - we would be set adrift to the mercy of where the winds blew us. So we encourage every member to participate in the survey if you haven’t already done so. Use your Prayer Squares and pray for guidance with the survey and pray for survey results that shows a complete picture of Holy Trinity.

The Call Committee wants to talk with you and pray with you. We will be hosting ‘Snacks on Saturday’ before the 5:00 PM Worship Service March 14th and ‘Coffee Hour’ after Worship on Sunday March 15th. This will be our first chance to meet face to face with you to answer any questions you might have about the Call Process, aboutthe Pastoral Search Survey and about the Call Committee itself. Even if you don’t have any questions, stop by and say a prayer with us!
