Dear Midway Covenant Family,
I pray you are doing well and finding God’s strength to deal with these challenging times. Please email the Prayer Line [firstname.lastname@example.org] with specific ways we can support you in prayer at this time. You are also invited to join a live prayer line on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 6 PM led by Pastor Shaun (contact him for phone conference info).
In an effort to stay connected, I want to share three pieces of information to you from your Leadership Team.
- At its April 14 meeting, the Leadership Team (LT) elected me, Ruth Hill, to serve as its Chairperson. I am humbled by this responsibility and committing myself to seek God’s wisdom and guidance in serving His church. It is a privilege to work with an amazing group of people—we are indeed a team.
- Also at the April 14 meeting, the LT unanimously voted to adjust the start date for Rev. Debra Gustafson (she prefers Pastor Deb) to allow for flexibility according to when the church can again gather in person. The original start date of May 1 did not seem realistic in that she would not be able to fulfill significant parts of her job description.
- We are delighted that housing has been found for Pastor Deb! She will be sharing a parsonage of another local church with a single woman. Remind us to share how this came about—it is an uplifting story of seeing God’s creative guidance.
- The PacNWC Office recently announced that its annual meeting will still be held April 25 at 10:30 AM; however, it will be a virtual meeting. In order to meet the deadline for delegate confirmation, the LT approved the following delegates: Ruth Hill, Stephen Hoyt and Shaun Higgins. Please consider attending as a General Conferee: http://pacnwc.org/event-calendar/2020-annual-celebration/
Blessings on you!
Chairperson, Leadership Team
