2019 will be an exciting year in the life of this church … with a new minister and other changes.
And the Nominating Committee is trying something new to fill our committees for next year. Rather than “assign” people to committees based upon responses to an Interest Form, we are letting people sign-up for the committee(s) that they would like to serve on.
All our committees need some new members. As planned for in our Constitution, every committee has a couple people whose terms have expired and will need some new people and new ideas. So, there is a committee where your talents and skills are needed. Please sign up for a committee that you think would be a good fit for your interests and talents. Join in the excitement, the changes, and some things that we just want to keep running as they are now.
There will also be “interest sheets” for many of our non-elected groups, such as the Dinner Groups or the Softball Team. If there is enough interest, these groups can ramp back up.
The sign-up sheets will be on tables in the basement, so that people can look them over during refreshments after church. The sheets will be available until about Thanksgiving, so there will be some time to think and pray about your decision. The sign-up sheets are based upon the Circles of Ministry work from a few years ago and try to answer many of the questions people have about the committees. If you have further questions, ask a Nominating Committee member or someone currently on the committee. (Members of the committees are posted on the bulletin board next to the kitchen window.)
PS. The Nominating Committee will still be contacting some people during this sign-up period.
