Our call to Pastor Wessel was declined. The call committee met after Lenten Worship on March 13th. They voted to recommend Pastor Dietrich as our next call candidate. He had only a few less votes than Pastor Wessel in our first selection process, and seems very well qualified. The next step will be a congregational question and answer session after Worship on March 24, for any questions and clarifications. After Worship on Sunday March 31st there will be a joint congregational meeting and vote to select our next call candidate. This will be immediately followed by a joint Voters meeting to ratify the selected candidate, and make the call official. Any questions can be directed to an Elder or a member of the call committee.
