After prayerful consideration, St. Johannes Church Council is canceling an informational meeting scheduled after the July 21st  church service.  Following is Council’s statement:

St.  Johannes Church Council’s Statement on Personnel Action

          Seven of the eight members of St. Johannes Church Council voted to terminate the employment of Organist, Choir Director George Hiatt on June 19, 2019.  One abstained.
          Those voting in favor were President Jean Rivas, Vice President Susan Crocker, Secretary Barbara Williams, Members Andy Hogue, Cynthia Mays, Kirsten Hughes and Pastor Alvin Shrum.  Mary Lou Waitschies abstained.
          The vote followed a lengthy Council executive session that concluded that a working relationship between the Pastor and George was no longer possible.  Although there were a number of incidents and factors that were considered as part of this decision, the discussion was prompted as a result of an incident that occurred between George and the Pastor at the altar after the June 16 service.
          Council agreed that it would be in the best interest of St. Johannes Church to immediately remove George from his position. 

          St. Johannes Church wishes George the best in his future endeavors.
