Children, Youth, and Family Director Search Update

Our search for a full-time Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministry is underway! Currently the search committee is finalizing the job description, which we will begin advertising nationwide in early June. We still hope to have our new staff person in place well ahead of our program year kick-off in September (ideally by early August). We ask for your prayers as we begin this important work. The members of the committee are: Pastor Anne Van Kley, Vicar Elizabeth Peter, David Roby, Joe Huber, Karla Ogle, Amy Wathey, Erica Shutes-David, Joyce Aasland, and youth representatives Zach Branica and Lindsey Wilder.

Vacation Bible School news

For a variety of reasons (including snow make-up days and staff transitions), we are taking this year off of Vacation Bible School. Families who are looking for a VBS option for their children might consider contacting another church in your neighborhood. Contact Pastor Van Kley if you need help finding these opportunities.
