RETIREMENT OF ROSANNE MAAS
At the April Council meeting it was moved, seconded and carried to extend our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to Rosanne Maas for her years of service at Central Lutheran Church extending back to August 4, 2003. Rosanne’s work and witness amongst us has been remarkable and life-giving. We congratulate her on her retirement and wish her and Jim God’s best as they enter this new season of their lives. May they continue to let their light shine brightly for Jesus Christ so that people will see their good works and give glory to our Father in heaven. Sunday, May 4 has been set aside as a day to honor Rosanne! In the lobby there will be baskets for you to share your notes, cards and expressions of gratitude.
CALL COMMITTEE UPDATE
“Bless the Lord, and forget not all his benefits!”
I am deeply grateful for the blessing of being part of a community of Christ-followers that truly care about the mission of Central! One of the agenda items at the April Council meeting was the formation of a call committee to assist in the process of recommending a candidate to serve as an Associate Pastor at Central. This past month 43 names were submitted to Brenda. At the Council meeting it was moved, seconded and carried to invite the following persons to serve on the call committee:
All seven nominees have humbly and willingly accepted the call to serve on Central’s Call Committee. Please begin to pray for each of these persons that God will give them wisdom and discernment as they assume the responsibility of being on the Call Committee. More information will be forthcoming as we move forward in this journey! For now PRAISE THE LORD for willing and Christ-filled members of Central who will serve well.
