We encourage the entire congregation to hold this committee in daily prayer as they diligently work to select a candidate to be our next senior pastor and for our church as a whole.


  • for our interim pastor Phil Thorne and his wife Cindi
  • for our ministerial staff, their commitment and devotion to our church during this time of transition
  • for the numerous referrals and recommendations the SMSC has received for potential senior minister candidates
  • for being able to pray together as a church in the recent all church prayer event


  • for a strong spirit of unity and mutual encouragement between the ministerial staff and the Board of Elders
  • for our ministerial staff as they discuss our church calendar and events for this fall
  • for wisdom for the SMSC as they evaluate candidates, including their sermons
  • for God to open the heart of our next senior minister and his family to carefully consider Park Street Church as their next calling
  • for God to grant health and safety for the SMSC members

Scripture for the month

Psalm 34:7

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.  

Psalm 125:1–2

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
