Expanding Leadership

Dear Friends,
 
I hope you are enjoying the worship series on the Book of Acts this summer. This past Sunday we learned about the need for expanding leadership to carry out the church’s ministry. I am grateful for the 9 new elders-elect who have heard the call to serve on Session for the next two years. Of course, a reason they could say “yes” was knowing that you, the congregation, are willing to serve alongside them, sharing your Spirit-given gifts. Those who are ordained and installed promise to pray for and serve the people with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love. They will be holding you in their hearts as they lead this congregation in the way of Christ. Please uphold Session in your prayers this coming year, as well.
 
One of their first acts as a Session in the next month or two will be to approve the Mission Study Report. This important report will set a direction for this congregation. As it unfolds, we hope you will begin to discern what part you might play in the body of Christ at work in Lexington. We look forward to growing together as disciples of Jesus.
 
Grace and peace,
Pastor Nancy

Rev. Dr. Nancy Jo Dederer,
