& Answer Session
8-6-23 Pastoral Transition Vote
On Sun., Aug. 6th, we had a congregational meeting. There was one item on the agenda and that item was whether to call Mike Eddy (sent to us from Interim Pastor Ministries) to serve as our Intentional Interim Pastor.
The vote was a solid 94% “yes” vote. The vote was by paper ballot, and there were 113 voting members present (106 voted “yes” and 7 voted “no”).
At this time, the thought is that is Mike and Natalie will arrive sometime in September, but details are still being worked out.
