Something for You to Consider
A Letter from Nominating and Representation Committee
The Presbytery will be needing to fill slots for positions on our units and committees. In early August, the Nominating and Representation Committee will begin to discern names and to contact folks we sense we are being led to do a new thing. We may have seen you at a Presbytery meeting or you may have been recommended by your pastor or by someone else.
Before any of these steps begin, we are asking you now, and we mean you, to prepare yourself and to prayerfully consider what God may be calling you to do next. Will it be a position in the Presbytery on one of our units or committees? If so, are you willing to take that risk to serve in a new capacity? Scary? Different? Absolutely. But be assured that you will be led by the Holy Spirit as we have been promised. What can you contribute? More than you could ever imagine.
Will an opportunity to do this be challenging? Yes. Will it be exciting? Yes, in a certain way. Will you be frustrated? Perhaps. Will you be bored? Not at all. Are you qualified for the task? We must believe and seek to follow Joshua’s instruction as seen in Joshua 1:9, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Remember, God does not call the equipped, but equips those whom He calls.
By accepting this work as a call, you will grow in your faith and your congregation will be blessed by your new found awareness of a wider church.
Please prayerfully consider this opportunity. You do not have to wait for an invitation from us. You could call the Presbytery office and tell Barb to put you on the list and we will follow up. May God’s blessings be abundant in your Christian life.
Believe & Rejoice,
Presbytery Nominating & Representation Committee
