Associate Pastor candidates lead vespers on August 13

The leadership of Grace Church, working with the Associate Pastor Call Committee, is recommending that the congregation call two faithful, gifted candidates to join the pastoral staff as associate pastors. The candidates will lead a vespers service on Saturday evening, August 13, at 7pm. There will be a special meeting of the congregation on Sunday, August 14, after the 11am worship service for the sole purpose of voting to call each candidate. Information about the candidates will be available at the vespers service. Pastor Lyle explained these new plans for the pastoral staff in a letter to the congregation.
