Our Church Council has spent much time in prayer and reflection since our last quarterly business meeting and reviewing over a thousand survey responses. We realize we need to do a better job in communicating with you and building trust. We also realize we got a little ahead of ourselves in scheduling the formation of a Senior Pastor Search Team. We want to have time to celebrate together the completion of Pastor Byron’s and Lynda’s ministry with us.
We also want to strengthen relations among our Elders and Ministry Team members, which we are already hard at work at this and are very hopeful. Additionally, we have a Vision team that is working diligently on the vision for RHCC moving forward. They have recognized the needs the surveys have reflected, including examining how we do weekend worship services and preaching so that we are building unity among us as a church family. Their work will be done in July, and this will be extremely helpful and important information for the Search Team when formed.
Finally, in our reviewing of our Church Constitution and By-Laws we realize a search team should be formed at the business meeting after a vacancy by a Pastor, which means following June 30. We are also hopeful that the Revive series completing on June 30 will do much in shaping us as a congregation as we go forward together. For all these reasons we will be moving the formation of a Senior Pastor Search Team until the September 22 quarterly business meeting. We encourage you to join us this Sunday at our Prayer and Praise Night, as we come together for a time of worship, prayer, & fellowship. Please keep praying with us during these important next few months, thank you.
