Sunday, February 2 is a very important time in the life of our church! We will be introducing our pastoral candidates, Nick and Karen Munn, to our congregation. They will be attending Sunday School classes at 9:45am and participating in the worship service at 11am, giving the sermon and officiating in Holy Communion. After lunch, we will be returning to the sanctuary where they will be available for questions and comments from all of you. The Search Team urges ALL to attend and to extend a warm welcome to this couple, who have been thinking and praying about this possible call from God for several months.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over and through all and in all. Eph. 4:2-6 Let us keep these words from the apostle Paul in our minds and hearts as we consider this important step of calling new shepherds to lead our flock here at Orchard Covenant Church. We will meet back together again on Sunday February 9 after the worship service to deliberate and vote on extending a call to the Munns.
