2013 Congregational Call Survey
One of the first tasks of your call committee is to complete a Ministry Site Profile. This Profile will be crucial to finding the best match of our future Senior Pastor with the needs of the congregation. Some elements of the Profile require input from the whole congregation. Please either download the attached PDF file or following the online survey link. Your responses are greatly appreciated – and will help us find the right pastor for Shepherd of the Hill.
We continue celebrating the Easter season! Christ is risen! Alleluia!

Strategic Planning Meetings: May 4th, 9a.m. - 12p.m. The council and all ministry team leaders will meet to plan short and longer term goals and plans to accomplish those goals. One will be to organize three congregational gatherings. Gatherings will be Sundays, May 12th, 19th and 26th, 9-10:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall (lower level). They are open to all members! Your guidance and assistance are vital as we move forward with the calling of a new pastor, developing a vision for our future, and know that we must all work as one body as we work to love and serve the Lord.
Spring Cleaning Saturday, April 27 at 9a.m. Those with green thumbs: please bring any garden implements that would help the clean up effort. (There is mulch to move!) We look forward to a wonderful time working together to beautify the building and grounds with which we've been blessed.
The call committee would like to thank you for your feedback in the call survey. Remember to share your input by April 26th. If you have any additional questions, please use the call committee question slips that are found in the attendance folders and place them in the offering plate.
Congratulations! Your council has approved and signed the contract to build and install the new organ. This has been a goal of this congregation for some time. It is hoped that it can be installed before Christmas. Your council has complete confidence that the small amount needed for this project will be forthcoming, so please continue to give as the Spirit moves you. Thanks to all who have helped make this new organ a reality. Special thanks to the organ committee, Judy Matarelli, Faye Wheeler and Ellen Schroll.
