The Call Team has been working every Monday night for the past month and a half to complete
Zion’s Site Profile. This required hard work, emotional conversation, and soul searching to find the right words to present our church and ministry. They met and completed the document on Memorial Day evening. The next evening, Tuesday May 29th the church council met to review the Site Profile. A vote was taken and the council agreed unanimously to accept and support the Site Profile. We thank the Call Team for all the work and time they have given to create this document.
The Site Profile will now be sent to the Synod. The date of June 12th has already been reserved for a joint meeting of the Call Team, the church council, and Synod representatives to review the Site Profile. and begin the Synod portion of the call process. As of that date we expect to officially move from interim status to call status. The Synod will then seek and present us with a pastoral candidate for the Call Team to interview. We will keep the congregation informed as the call process moves forward.
Please keep in mind that currently in the NJ Synod there are nine churches in the call process, and another ten churches “on deck” in the interim
