News and Events
On Sunday, May 14th, at 9:30 am, David Miron from Samaritan Counseling was present to discuss the findings of the Congregational Assessment Survey that you completed a couple months ago. Those who attended learned some things about the congregation – that the members recognize the need to make changes that will revitalize the church but also cherish the traditions and the history of the church. As the Consistory has been developing and discerning a vision for the future of Trinity, we want to be aware of this sense of the congregation.
The Consistory will hopefully complete the discernment and visioning process when it meets on Tuesday evening, May 23rd, to outline a final approach to the sense of the profile that will attract qualified interested pastors to send their profiles for consideration. This information will be provided to the Profile Committee as that group begins the process of writing and developing the profile for Trinity. The Profile Committee, meeting for the first time on Wednesday, May 24th, will be composed of Ruth Krietz, serving as Chair, Bette Bunce, Lou Hammann, Ann Harvey, Elaine Milhimes, and Joan Peck. John Fuss will provide the financial information for the profile, and Jane Eiker and Jane Malone will serve as proofreaders. The committee will meet with Betsy Bruaw from Penn Central Conference who will provide some guidelines. The goal of the Profile Committee is to complete their work and submit a completed profile to the Consistory by September 1st.
The Personnel Committee, which will recommend the members of the Search Committee to the Consistory, will begin its work completing that part of the search process when it meets in June. You have been given index cards during worship services asking for you to write down the names of five people whose judgment you respect and trust. This information will become part of the Search Committee’s process of discerning who should serve. The committee will be seeking a healthy balance on the Search Committee as it begins its work. The Search Committee members, when chosen, will go through some training in understanding their role and how to best fulfill their task. It is hoped that a Search Committee will be chosen by September or October.
