What’s Next?

With the retirement of Pastor Parks, the Council is moving Pastor Squires to full-time and making her head of staff. We are grateful for her openness to serving in that capacity and for her care for the congregation.

 

Later this summer, a “Ministry Assessment” process will begin. Our Savior’s is contracting with Rev Dr Rick Rouse as facilitator of this important time of listening, praying and imagining the future of pastoral ministry in our congregation. It will mean small group meetings, a survey and interviews with individuals. The goal is to have EveryOne participate.

 

Pastor Squires remains our Pastor and we appreciate her partnership in this season of new beginnings. We also give thanks for your ongoing devotion and participation at Our Savior’s.
