The Church Council is in the final steps of selecting the call committee. We have been working with the synod office to guide us through this process. We were blessed with almost twenty volunteers to be on the LCR Call Committee. These volunteers answered a questionnaire as a part of the selection process. The council chose a diverse cross-section of members to represent the congregation. We will be announcing the call committee after review from the synod Bishop’s assistant. We believe we have a great team assembled to map the direction of the church through the selection of its next leader. May God bless you and keep you always! Questions or concerns – contact Jim or Dave or any council member.
