Pastor's Paragraph 2/14/19

Pastor’s Paragraph — February 14, 2019

My days of being your pastor are rapidly drawing to a close.  We have two more Sundays to worship our Lord together.  This coming Sunday’s (February 17) worship service will include the baptisms of seven new Christians!  My sermon (which is based on Numbers 13:1-3, 17-33; 14:1-4) is entitled “Where Do We Go From Here?”  On February 24, I will be preaching my final sermon as your pastor.  Taken from Philippians 1:3-6, the working title of this message is “Thank You, I’ll Remember You, God be with You.” 
 
In coming days, I will continue to express my thanks to God and to you (my CBC family) for the opportunity and privilege of being the pastor of such an extraordinary church for these past 27 1/2 years.  For now, I want to thank you for all the many birthday greetings and messages that I received this past Sunday which was my 66th birthday.  Being able to worship God with you on my birthday #66 was a gift that I will always treasure. 
 
I look forward to worshipping with you the next two Sundays.  May God bless each of you during this time of transition!
 
Blessings from your grateful pastor,
Bob

Transition Team Announcement 1/31/19

The Transition Team has posted a 1/31/19 update that can be found on the Transition Information page. You can read the update below as well.


Transition Team Update 1-31-19

Here is a list of the Transition Team’s immediate and long-term goals. We are well on the way of getting a short-term Interim Pastor in place and moving on to the next step. Check in for additional updates on our link on the church website. Thank you for your prayers and support!

I. Short-term Interim Pastor and Pulpit Supply - March 3- May 26 (Memorial Day weekend):

Pulpit Speaker – 8:30 and 11:00 service each Sunday

The Transition Team believes that a consistent presence in the pulpit to lead the church after Bob’s final Sunday and through the Lenten season and Easter is needed.

A short term Interim Pastor will preach at two services each Sunday morning with no other pastoral duties except preaching on Sunday. (The college services will continue with Niki Hays leading until classes conclude in the summer as usual.) The Transition Team has a “deep bench” of substitute speakers in addition to staff to fill in on any Sunday the short-term interim might have a conflict.

II. Options for Creation of Congregational Profile and New Pastor Profile Documents:

The Transition Team has begun assembling data about our church and community that need to be in a congregational profile. We still need input from the church, and think that large-scale congregational conversations and surveys need to be done in order to complete the creation of a profile that reflects who we are, and who we are looking for.

Once we secure our short-term interim pastor, the Transition Team sees completion of these documents as its next task.

Options we are considering:

                1. No outside facilitator/drafter - Calvary does it on its own. There are a lot of resources available for churches wishing to undertake this project internally.

                2. Hire outside facilitator/drafter with experience with churches which have undergone a transition or leadership search.

III. Long-term Interim Pastor

After Memorial Day weekend, the Transition Team will again need to have preaching lined up for the open-ended time between then and the ultimate call of a pastor. If the short-term interim pastor has been successful, and is interested in continuing, the Team may request an extension of the original commitment, but the Transition Team is also scouting out other possible interim candidates to serve the church going forward during this time.
