Search Committee Updates

Updates on the progress of the search will occur at regular intervals, approximately once per month.  Please remember the committee cannot divulge any information regarding the identities of the candidates.

 

UPDATE 1/6/20: Our first two parish profile sessions were well attended and provided lots of positive comments about our parish and hopes for our future. Our third and final session will be held Tuesday, Jan. 7 in the parish hall at 6 p.m.  Babysitting and refreshments will be provided.

The questions posed at the profile sessions have been posted on the website and any one who was not able to attend one of the sessions is invited to respond to the questions and drop their answers by the administration building, where they will be collected by the committee.

The committee will hold its second meeting Thursday, Jan. 9 to complete writing the profile so that it can be submitted to the vestry for approval.  We are asking the vestry to review and approve the profile at their vestry retreat during the weekend of Jan 17.  After that, the profile will be posted on our website and submitted to the diocese for posting on their open position job site.

 

UPDATE 12/5/19:  The Search Committee has been formed, and will be introduced to the congregation this coming Sunday.  Our first meeting was held December 4 with the Rev. Michael Singer, Transition Ministry Officer for the diocese, attending.  Rev. Singer reviewed the process with the committee.

One of the first steps in the search process is to develop a parish profile, which is a document that will articulate our strengths, challenges, and opportunities to prospective candidates. The profile also gives us a chance to describe the kind of rector we are looking for.

To help prepare the profile, three Profile Development meetings will be held, and all members of the congregation are encouraged to come share their thoughts. The meetings will be held in the parish hall on:

  • Wednesday, December 11 at 11:00 a.m.;
  • Sunday, December 15 following the joint service/annual meeting (The Joint Service begins at 9:30 a.m.);
  • Tuesday, January 7 at 6:00 p.m.

Babysitting is available at the December 15 and January 7 meetings.  The meetings should last about one hour, and light refreshments will be served.

We need your input as we begin our search for our next rector. Come join us!
