Interim Associate Minister Bob Griggs joined the Associate Minister Search Committee for a recent dinner meeting. Being Bob, he couldn’t resist snapping his salad tongs in the air and asking committee members what he was doing. ???
Answer: “Speaking in tongs.” We discussed how his experience as a full time associate minister in this congregation has evolved, and how that process may inform the job description the committee is crafting.
The committee is preparing to finalize the updated 2011 church profile and present it to the Church Council and the congregation later in September. Then when the conference liaison reviews it and a brief job description, we’ll be ready to post both with the UCC conference. The committee’s progress is charted on the bulletin board to the left of the kitchen window, next to the other committees’ minutes.
