We are pleased to report that last evening the voting body of the Presbytery of Los Ranchos voted affirmatively to approve our request to call Rev. Lissa Smith as our Designated Pastor. We are grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our congregation as we have moved through several seasons of transition and have now completed this latest process. With this affirmation from Presbytery we will be able to install Rev. Smith in her position as pastor and continue moving forward in our fulfilling of God’s vision for our church.
We are also grateful for the support and guidance from the presbytery’s Committee on Ministry and in particular the work and partnership of John Griffin who was assigned to our church as a liaison and assistant in our work together in seeking pastoral leadership.
This is a great way to begin our Thanksgiving holiday season, we have so much to be grateful for in our lives and in our family of faith. May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
Gratefully and on behalf of the Designated Pastor Nominating Committee,
Brian Kidd, chair
