Dear Journey Family,
Attached is the bulletin from last Sun. 1/26 and some updates since then.
Operations Conference Call
We invite everyone to join the church-wide operations call to plan and coordinate upcoming events and worship on Tue. 2/4, 6:30-7:30 PM.
Deacon Nominations and Term Extension
Please prayerfully nominate up to two members via email or fill out and turn in the nomination slip to Theresa immediately after worship this Sunday, 2/2 .
Along with the deacon nominations for new deacons, the deacon board will be asking the congregation to extend the term for Dan Shin, Theresa Shin, Charles Kim and Grace Yum, in light of the fact that we currently do not have a senior pastor. The extension will be for one additional year and the vote will take place on the same day as the vote for new deacons on Sun. 2/23.
Christine Wilson has only completed one year of her 3-year term so she will be continuing on as a deacon, regardless.
Senior Pastor Search Update
The committee is reviewing application(s) and will decide on who will move forward to the next step–the screening interview with the search committee. Please pray that all four pastors submit formal applications.
