Pastoral Call Process
Where do we start?
The Call Committee has officially begun the ELCA process of calling a new pastor to Emmanuel. The first step in that process is a thorough introspection of who were are/where we are today, and who want to be/where we want to take Emmanuel in the future. From that information, we will write a detailed job description of what we want, need, and expect from our next pastor.
Your input is vital! The Call Committee has put together a 5-question questionnaire for you to complete. We have sent them out by email and passed them out at meetings and after church, but, in case you did not receive one, you can find a copy of the questionnaire below or in the Sunday bulletins. Please answer the questions as fully as you can and return them to us by putting them in the large mailbox marked Quicker as soon as possible.
We need your help!
- What is your age, and how involved are you at Emmanuel? For instance, are you in any of the study groups or involved in activities? Do you teach Sunday School, sing in the choir, or serve on any committees?
- What do you like about Emmanuel?
- What do you dislike about Emmanuel?
- What changes or improvements would you like Emmanuel to make?
- What is your vision for the future of Emmanuel?
Bonus: Is there anything else you would like to share?
