Ministry Description Our church has a strong tradition, nurtured over many years, of “ministers all.” This foundation was carefully laid by the late Rev. Roger Daum over many years. When he died unexpectedly, the inclusive style of leadership he fostered helped hold us together. That foundation has been encouraged and continues to this day and is an ongoing part of who we are. Our church uses the lectionary and makes use of all three readings. In the tradition of “ministers all,” both deacons and the pastor use the main pulpit for the readings. The first two readings are done by deacons, who also study the reading during the week and give an exegesis of the reading prior to it. In months with five Sundays, the fifth Sunday is “deacon’s Sunday, which is lay led, often including things like performance drama, or sometimes partnering with a neighboring church to worship with them, or they with us. The Pastor is a member and an integral part of the Worship team. This team functions with the Pastor sharing the responsibility and coordination of worship with the deacons and music leader. Ideas for special services and worship events are brought to the Worship team for discussion and assembly. We look to the pastor for spiritual leadership and inspiration. The covenant of our church speaks to the direction we will continue to pursue with our new pastor. By the call of our Lord, Jesus Christ, We bind ourselves to God and to one another To increase our love of God and neighbor To inspire our living with the hearing of the Word, and To strive to render God’s blessing to all. Amen
