Finding the Pastor called to Faith by God
Pastor Riordan will be retiring from full time ministry this fall.
Dear family and friends at Faith,
The call committee asks for your prayers for patience and strength as we continue on in the process. Pray also for steadfastness throughout the vacancy at Faith. Seek comfort in knowing that our Lord has a pastor chosen for us.
The committee has reviewed the call list from District and will complete zoom meetings with selected candidates by Friday, February 9. By February18 a short list of candidates will be made known to the congregation. At this time SET's and biographic summaries of the candidates will be available.
Tentative date for the call meeting with the voters is set for Sunday, March 3.
Thank you again for your support and patience.
—Blessings, Call Committee

We value every person's input, and all the responses will be anonymous. The goal is to get a snapshot of who we are as a congregation, and how we want to move forward into the future. Please return your survey by June 18.
Excerpt From the Faith Bylaws:
Board Of Elders
The Board of Elders shall initially consist of eight members. Each member’s term of office shall be two years. New board members shall be elected each year by the Voters’ Assembly. They shall organize and elect a chairman who shall represent them on the Church Council.
6. In case of a vacancy in the office of pastor, form a search committee to investigate the qualifications of possible candidates to fill the vacancy. This committee shall provide a slate of candidates to the Board who, in turn, shall provide a slate to the Voters’ Assembly with recommendation for selection of a candidate for a call.
