Seeking Search Committee Nominations

The next step in our search for our new settled minister is to solicit nominations from the congregation for members to make up our Ministerial Search Committee.  In the coming week, we will be holding a series of small group virtual meetings, facilitated by a member of the Parish Committee or Nominating Committee. There will be time to discuss the qualities needed for someone to serve on a Ministerial Search Committee and the commitment required of its members, as well as a chance to ask lingering questions about the search process.  At the end of the meeting, you will be asked to confidentially submit your nomination to the facilitator.
