The Transition Team has been slowed a bit by all the bad weather that we have had over the past month, and met on Monday, March 26th to discuss ways in which they could assist and encourage the work of the Call Committee. After doing some work on documents and statistics that the Call Committee will need and gathering information toward cleaning up our membership roll, the team will stand ready to assist the Call Committee as needed. The Transition Team will also be asking the congregation to do some “narrowing down” of most desired pastoral qualities on Easter Sunday. As always, if you have questions or concerns about the transition process, don’t hesitate to contact any member of your Transition Team: Dottie Weis, Megan Davis, Harry Bullock, Bill Howell, Diane Rochotte, Maddie Bataille and Pastor Dan Schroeder.
The Call Committee has continued to meet and to work on the preparation of the Site Profile. The Site Profile is the document that will describe Zion Church and its pastoral needs to the New Jersey Synod and to any who might be interested in being a candidate for the pastoral position here. Since this document will be the “face of Zion”, it is very important that we take the time to make it as accurate as possible and as inviting as possible. When we have completed the Site Profile, there will be a meeting of the Church Council and Call Committee with a New Jersey Synod representative to launch the search process.
The members of your Call Committee are: Larry Salvatore, Christine Stabile, Emily Rochotte, Isabella Brobst, John Zeier, Linda Tucker, Marcia Horner, and Tom Scudese.
The Transition Team will meet next at the direction of the Call Committee. The Call Committee will meet next on April 9th at 7:00 pm in the Adult Forum Room.
