It’s an exciting time to be a Ricklepickle! The church has done amazing ministry for over 171 years, we’ve gone through all kinds of craziness, we’ve learned and grown and served together, the Spirit has been alive and active and moving through our community…and now she’s at it again!
This weekend we have the opportunity to meet the pastor that the PNC has discerned God is calling to minister with, in, and through our community. His name is John, and he and most of his family will be here all weekend long. Together we will discern whether the Spirit is calling us to work together for the Kingdom in this place and in this time. I hope you’ll join us!
Saturday, 9-11am: social event in the lounge–drop in (open house style) to meet John and his family! (child care is available)
Saturday, noon: deacons and session have lunch with John. (child care is available)
Sunday, 8.30, 9.30, 11: John preaches (and does the children’s time) at all 3 services. (nursery available)
Sunday, noon-ish: after the third service, we will hold a congregational meeting to vote on whether John is called to be our next pastor and on his terms of call (“contract”). A copy of his terms of call has been sent (snail mail) to everyone in the church, so you should have that any minute.
Please come out for this exciting weekend as we determine what new thing God is doing in our midst!
