*Congregational Vote to Call New Co-Pastor

May 26, 2017

On Sunday, June 11 following worship, we will hold a congregational meeting to vote to extend a call to fill our co-pastor position.  Council and the Search and Call committee have both unanimously recommended Pastor Amy Walter-Peterson for the position of co-pastor for BLC.  You should have received an informational packet discussing this recommendation, the candidate, the process and some Q&A’s.  It was mailed by hard copy on 5/25 and emailed that same day.

There will be Q&A forums following worship on both Thursday, June 1 and Sunday, June 4.  Also, there will be a “Meet & Greet” with Pastor Walter-Peterson and her husband, Hans on June 10 at BLC from 4:00-6:00 pm.  Finally, Pastor Walter-Peterson will lead worship on June 11.  The decision to call a pastor lies with the congregation and a congregational meeting will be held immediately following worship on June 11 to vote on extending a call. If you have any questions, please contact any member of Council or the Search and Call committee.
