1. PASTORAL SEARCH UPDATE: At the July 5 Council Meeting, the Council unanimously approved the Personnel Committee’s motion to call Jonathan Szeto as the Associate Pastor for the English Congregation. A special Question and Answer (Q&A) session will be held with the Search Committee in the MPR after the second worship service on July 23rd. This Q&A session will be to discuss the search and evaluation process. Two weeks later, on August 6, a Special Members’ Meeting will be held after the second worship service to vote (only those members present may vote) on whether or not to confirm Jonathan’s calling to LCBC. To submit your questions for the Search Committee Q&A, please submit any written questions to the box on the East side of the MPR. We continue to ask for your fervent prayers as we seek God’s will and congregational unity in this process.
