Dear Friends,

Several updates today. I am grateful to see the ball rolling forward on several fronts for our church family. Here’s a quick list of items I think you’ll want to know about.

Town Hall

Our 2nd Town Hall is this Monday, March 1st from 6:30-7:35pm. Child Care is available! If you’re invested in the future our church family, you’re invited to this discernment, information, and prayer event. Last month's town hall focused on a mission/vision audit. It was incredible to see how, as we prayed and discussed values, the same ones bubbled up from every group. Those values and a restatement of our mission are finding expression in a draft form (like wet cement). You’ll see there’s more discernment to be done but the Ministry Board is encouraged. I hope you are, too.

Staff Search: Please take this info as a prayer request for your life group or small group.

Worship Pastor: We’re doing a national search with the help of a consultant. On average a search process takes around 3 months. Our worship pastor search team is eagerly waiting a first look at some viable candidates. This search is live and you can view the post HERE.

Youth Pastor: The Ministry Board decided this past Monday to start a national search for our next Youth Pastor. Our youth ministry is strong thanks to Tony Mong and Sam Wieber (our pastoral intern). Tony has now totally passed the overall student leadership baton to Sam. Tony continues to lead our men’s 11thand 12th grade small group – super grateful for his leadership. I’ll let you know when the search goes live in a couple of weeks.

Ministry Coordinator: We’ve also launched an internal search for a ministry coordinator. This is a part time position, 3 to 4 days per week. This person will coordinate support and connection for a wide variety of ministries in our church including: Small Groups, Guest Care, Assimilation, Deaconesses, etc. You can view a draft of the role description here. Please encourage folks to look and apply for the role if it looks like a potential fit. Resumes can be sent to office@codycma.org. You can view a draft of the role description HERE. Application dead-line is March 18, 2021.

Thanks for taking the time to read through all this info. I hope to see you either in person or on-line this Sunday as we gather as a family. The passage I’m unpacking is one of my favorites.

With affection,
Randy Shaw
Lead Pastor
