It gives me great happiness that God gave us such a wonderful annual member's meeting. Jim Showers and Dan Polzien did a great job leading it. I am so very thankful for the joyful spirit that permeated the entire meeting. God was truly in our midst leading. With an overwhelming majority, our new constitution passed. Our three elders who were nominated were unanimously voted in. We are now elder-led. Praise the Lord! Our three new elders are Jim Showers, Steve Lowry, and Wayne Twichell.
Pray much for them. They are being thrown into the deep end very quickly and have a lot on their plates. I am meeting with them every Thursday night until early March. We are covering lots of bases together. Two things that are important for us to know:
1. The elders are already at work putting together a pastoral search team.
2. The elders are also hard at work putting together a preaching schedule for themselves. They are considering a book of the Bible that they can preach through on a rotation basis.
