Friends in Christ,

After many months of diligent searching and prayerful discernment, members of the Presbytery of Lake Michigan Search Committee have identified the candidate that we believe God has raised up to be the Presbytery’s Executive Presbyter/Stated Clerk.

We are eager for the presbytery members to meet and get to know the candidate the Committee will present at the March 12 Stated Meeting of the Presbytery.

So, the committee has scheduled two meetings for members of the Presbytery to get to know the candidate and to ask questions. These meetings will be held via Zoom at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 6, and 7 p.m. Monday, March 7.

Registration for the meeting will be done via an online form available here. Link details for the meetings will be sent by 5 p.m. Friday, March 4, to the email address provided on the registration form.

Information about the candidate will be included in the final March 12 Stated Meeting packet that will be posted by Saturday, March 5, on the Presbytery Meetings page.

Peace in Christ,

Rev. Christine Barnes, Moderator
