giving glory to God as we continue our journey. St. John’s is giving glory to
God in our church and school (Jerusalem), glory to God in the
communities where we live (Judea), glory to God in nearby communities
cross-culturally (Samaria) and glory to God even to the ends of the
earth! (Acts 1:8).

The Call Process
July 17, 2016
This week the Call Committee met for the first time to review the
process and begin to look at a profile that we need to fill out and
return to the Northern Illinois District before they will send us
information about names we suggest or names they will add. The
profile asks questions such as:
What do we see as our Mission?
What have been significant events in the past?
What have been the School enrollment, Worship attendance, and
offerings today, five year ago and ten years ago?
The profile will make us look at ourselves and evaluate ourselves.
It will also help the District suggest Pastoral candidates who would
align with St. John’s missional objectives, stylistic preferences,
and pastoral needs.
To date we have received five names which we have now passed on to
District. If you have other names, please fill out the form
available in the Church Narthex or Church Office and return it to
the Church Office.
At times you may hear little from the Call Committee because their
discussions concerning candidates need to be kept confidential, but
be assured that the process will move forward as efficiently as
possible. Please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will guide
our Call Committee and our congregation.

I am in the word daily, I feel God’s presence. I have an easier time
resisting temptation and discerning His will. Reading daily doesn’t
have to be doggedly endured. There are fresh new ways to do it. I
can be on autopilot and it allows God to be in charge. With Him in
charge, it gives
started small groups because I was invited. That simple gesture has
led to making connections and starting other new small groups. I am
open to meeting new people and seeing the resources God has given us
with people and we get to see how He works in our lives. People can
be threatened by church.
