The Pastor Search Committee is very excited to introduce a Candidate to the Congregation! We will gather together on Saturday, August 5, starting at 4:00 pm for a time to hear from the Candidate, ask questions, and for discussion.
Because we are Family, we will enjoy a pitch-in meal together as part of the evening. The Elders will provide meat, drinks, and table service. If you are able, please bring a dish to share.
After the meal, the Congregation will consider and vote on whether to call the Candidate to serve as Senior Minister at Flora First Christian Church.
The Elders have reviewed the surveys and listened to your hopes and dreams for our Church. We believe that we have found a pastor that is inspired by the scripture and filled with the Holy Spirit. You asked for someone approachable, energetic, enthusiastic, and ready to accept the challenge to inspire our Church. You asked for a pastor that has a vision for the future and is capable of leading outreach to grow our congregation. You have asked for a pastor that is family-oriented, loves children, and has fresh ideas to approach them. The Elders believe that the Candidate embodies these characteristics, and is a good fit for our Congregation and Community.
Please join us in Fellowship on Saturday evening to meet our Candidate, share a meal with us, and stay to vote on calling a new Pastor to our Church and Community!
The Vacation Bible School program this year featured an Amazing Race theme, in which the children “visited” four countries – India, Egypt, Burkina Faso, and Argentina – before “returning home” to the USA.
In Burkina Faso, we learned that there was only 1 ambulance for more than $30,000 people. Carroll County, Indiana has 3 ambulances for 19,000 people. Our mission offering this year was to help raise money to ship an ambulance to Burkina Faso – a total cost of $10,000.
Thanks to the generosity of the children and the congregations of the Culter Presbyterian Church, the Flora Presbyterian Church, and the Flora First Christian Church, we collected $3,140.83!
