Pastor Search Update
As you know, our Senior Pastor, Jim Birchfield, has announced his retirement in April 2023. To help facilitate a seamless transition, your Session and Standing Nominating Committee have been busy laying the foundation for a well-organized search process. To date, your Session has met with ECO leadership to review the succession plan and begin outlining the pastor search process, and the Standing Nominating Committee is making preparations to kick off the process for nominating individuals to sit on the Pastor Nominating Committee at the beginning of July. We will continue to update you as the process progresses. 

Campus Construction Projects
If you have been on campus lately, you know that many projects are in the works or starting soon to help fulfill our call to be a church Here to Serve.  Stay tuned for a detailed update on in-progress and newly approved projects.

Summer Sermon Series
On Sunday, June 27, we kicked off our summer sermon series, "Walking in Wisdom Through a Forest of Foolishness." In this series, we are seeking to understand that during all seasons of life the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
