Oct. 22 Associate Pastor Call Update

Oct. 22 The Call Committee has finalized plans for Pastor Ben and Christine Loos’s visit which will occur October 23 and 24. They actually arrive late on Sunday night so will be starting their day with us on Monday morning and wrapping up early afternoon Tuesday so that they can catch their plane at 2:30 pm. We’ve arranged a variety of interviews and tours plus an opportunity for the congregation to meet the Loos’s on Monday evening.   PLEASE attend the “Meet‐n‐Greet” (an open house format) on Monday evening from 6:45 to 8:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall where we will serve cookies/bars/punch/coffee. (The nursery will be staffed). We’ll give Pastor Loos the microphone at about 7:15 to give a 5‐10 minute introduction of himself, his family, his background. The format is not “Question & Answer” at that point, but we urge members to engage in conversation during the open house to get to know him and Christine better. The Call Committee has interviewed him twice and Called Staff once. The itinerary for this visit includes additional interviews that include submitted questions from the congregation. He will also have some informal time with Council members and other leaders of ministry areas specific to the Associate Pastor job description.  He will have answered many questions by the end of the day on Monday, October 24; no doubt he will have many questions for us as well. PRAYERS: Lord, our hearts are full of anticipation and joy as we wait to meet Pastor Ben & Christine:
 Give them safe travel to Minnesota and back to Connecticut.   
 Thank you for this opportunity to show them our Redeemer family ‐  bless the time they spend with various groups, staff, and members.   Let us all get any questions answered so that we may go forward with YOUR plan to bring a new Associate Pastor to us.
 We give you the glory in everything and ask for patience as we wait. Thy will be done!
