Dear friends,

We are happy to share that the pastoral search team has presented the Rev. Ross Dieleman to the consistory. They unanimously support him as the candidate for Pastor of Congregational Formation. He will be preaching at both services this Sunday, November 18. Please visit our transition blog to hear the announcement about the shared leadership model. Ross is currently serving at Christ Memorial Church as the Minister of Discipleship. We invite you to learn more about him and his family this Sunday. Then, please plan to join us for a Congregational Meeting during our Table to Table brunch on December 2 at 11:30am.

Here are some important upcoming dates:
