As you pray for God’s wisdom to inform and guide us, as well as His grace to enable us to carry out this task, the Pastor Search Committee offers this passage for our collective consideration during this season of our lives together.  We commend all of I Corinthians 3 for your meditation, but we thought verses 6-11 to be appropriate to our situation.

“I (Paul) planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.  So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God Who gives the growth.  He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor.  For we are God’s fellow workers.  You are God’s field, God’s building.  According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it.  Let each one take care how he builds upon it.  For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
