There will be Roman crafts, foods from the culture, games and dramas to act out the Bible stories. And as always, there will be a component of service to others; as we learn about the aqueducts and clean water, we will be collecting change to send the gift of life-giving water to kids in some of Peru’s most remote areas.

Rector Search Update

What’s Happened: During January and February, the Search Committee listened to sermons submitted by the candidates and skype interviews with each candidate were scheduled. The committee completed 14 interviews, and narrowed the field to five strong candidates.

What’s Happening Now: Teams from the committee will visit with each of the five remaining candidates before Easter. During the visits, we will interview each candidate and have dinner with them. We will attend several services as well to see them preach and celebrate.

What’s Happening Next: The search is very much on schedule. We will have formal meetings of the entire committee to review each team’s visit. We are getting close!
