Elder Suggestions for the Nominating Committee
The Nominating Committee asks for your recommendations of individuals you believe are strong candidates for the Board of Elders. In addition to the Biblical requirements, candidates must be church members in good standing, have demonstrated leadership in the church, and have shown a consistent Christian witness in their service within various church ministries. Email [email protected] with your nominee’s name, a description of his or her church leadership, and a short explanation of why you believe he or she is a strong candidate.
The Nominating Committee is grateful for your recommendations and asks for your prayers that God will provide them with guidance, wisdom, diligence, and openness to the Holy Spirit in discerning his will as they commence their search for congregational leadership. 1 Tim 5:21-22

2023 Missions Budget Update
At the Annual Meeting in February, the congregation approved a “Big Ask” regarding the 2023 Missions Budget and anticipates a substantial increase of $266K in giving, or 15.9%, for this year. This increase is due to long-planned, additional funding for PSC missionaries to various parts of Asia and the Middle East and continuing outreach through City Engagement. Currently, year-to-date giving to Missions is equal to, but not greater than, last year. Please remember that gifts toward the Missions Budget must be specifically designated that way when you give electronically or noted in the memo line on your check or envelope. The illustration below provides a summary of the need.
The 2023 Ministry & Operations Budget anticipates a more modest increase in congregational giving of $141K, or 4.6% and giving is currently at a pace to achieve that outcome.
