In 2013 we began the process of establishing a new ministry model for our church. Instead of calling another full-time associate pastor, we chose to divide the responsibilities into two part-time positions. During the summer of 2013 we hired Anne Fuehrer as our Director of Children & Family Ministries. In 2014 the Council approved the creation of a new position: Pastor of Member Care and Visitation. This person will share the responsibilities of making hospital visits and calling on our homebound members, plus will oversee our lay visitation program. This is a part-time position, starting at 10 hours per week and increasing to 15 hours in a few months. Because this is a new staffing model, we will have a trial period to make sure it is what we need in the life of our congregation at this time.
We are blessed to have Rev. Jill Saxby, a member of our congregation, filling this role.
