As the calendar year draws to a close, so do appointments to our church council positions. While many positions have fantastic representatives ready to be nominated at January’s congregational meeting, there are two very important ministries that are in need of leadership going into 2023.

The first ministry in need of leadership is the Welcoming and Fellowship Ministry. Susan Atkinson has led this ministry with grace and fun loving spirit for the past seven years. We are grateful for all she has done to make our church a welcoming community. There are several congregational members who enjoy volunteering on this ministry but we do not have someone to lead the efforts. Is that person you? Please reach out to Susan Atkinson if you are interested in sharing leadership duties with this fun crew!

The second ministry that is in need of leadership is the moderating team. Lisa Allison-Moon will take over as the church’s Moderator in January. Laurel Powell will roll into the Past Moderator position and we are looking for someone to take on the Moderator-elect role. This role is a vital member of our congregation. You do not need to be an expert or the most outgoing member of our congregation to be a successful Moderator-elect! This position is a 3-year commitment and is supported by the moderating team. The first year is a learning experience, the second year rolls into the Moderator position, and the third year is the Past Moderator.  If you are interested in supporting our church through this important position, please reach out to Laurel Powell or Lisa Allison-Moon for more information. We look forward to working with someone who has fresh ideas and dedication to making our congregation the best it can be!
