ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome Rev. Tobey!
This Sunday we are pleased to welcome Rev. Catherine Tobey as she leads us in worship and communion.  The following provides a bit of her background. We hope everyone will join us and welcome her.

Rev. Catherine Tobey was born and raised in Ogden, but she visited 37 countries by age 26. On many of these trips, she spent one week to four months serving alongside missionaries and developed a deep passion for holistic service and Christian ministry. After earning degrees in Theology and Spanish from Whitworth University, she went on to Princeton Theological Seminary for an MDiv and to be trained at a church plant in urban Philadelphia. Upon returning home, she became highly involved in the local conversation around meeting community needs. An ordained Presbyterian minister, she serves as an administrator at a Christian school, chaplain at a hospital, and partner with her husband in Arcadia Guided Outdoor Education. 

Your Worship Ministry Team
A MESSAGE FROM OUR COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Last week, we said farewell to our interim pastor, Teri Hermsmeyer, thanking her for her support and dedication. This week, we look ahead to some new beginnings at Prince of Peace: We’re preparing to hire a new permanent pastor. We’re preparing to renew engagement on congregational teams. We’re preparing for a time of reflection and commitment to use our resources wisely. I’m writing to share a bit more about each of these new beginnings:
Permanent Pastor: The call committee is progressing in its work to select a new permanent pastor. Initially, two candidates indicated their interest in Prince of Peace based on our Ministry Site Profile. The call committee reviewed their materials and interviewed them both. Based on these interactions, the committee elected to release one candidate and to continue conversations with the other. After another interview, the committee is inviting this candidate to visit Cache Valley and gauge potential fit with our broader community. Meanwhile, a new candidate has submitted an application, and the call committee interviewed that candidate this week. The call committee is progressing wisely: responding quickly to interview interested candidates while proceeding prayerfully with decision making. In the meantime, the worship team has arranged for a supply pastor to preside over worship, preach, and serve communion on Oct. 6th & 27th; a seminarian will lead worship and preach, but no communion, on Oct. 13th.  
Congregational Teams: In October, we’re going to bring back “Ministry Minutes” (affectionately remembered, I am told, as “M&M Sundays”). On M&M Sundays, a representative of congregational teams—such as the worship team, property team, Christian education team, etc—will spend a couple of minutes during the service explaining their team’s mission and inviting members to join. This is a great way to learn more about the work of the church, to get involved in new ways, and to revitalize these teams in supporting God’s work in our congregation and our broader community. Plus, there will be M&Ms (candy) for all!
Stewardship for All Seasons: The Stewardship for All Seasons (SAS) committee has been hard at work, preparing to help the congregation think and act intentionally with our resources. Prince of Peace is a deeply blessed church, and we’re well positioned to share those blessings with our local community. SAS is readying a big launch later this year to inspire and educate us about how to steward those blessings. Stay tuned!
Traditionally, autumn may not be a time for new growth and new beginnings, but this year it is for Prince of Peace, and I’m encouraged to see what God is cultivating within and through us.

Rebecca Walton, President of Church Council

Call Committee Progress:
After conducting online interviews with two candidates, the Call Committee has released one candidate and will do further interviews with the remaining candidate. In addition, we have received a third candidate from the Bishop’s office and we hope to interview that candidate very soon.

We will keep the congregation updated as things unfold. Keep watching for updates in the Proclaimer or feel free to ask members of the committee about our progress.

Adult Education Sunday Hour
Because people come and go and are not there every Sunday, we will study the weekly lectionary texts in more depth as a way to supplement our faith formation.  We will discuss the following texts:

(10/6)
- Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4
-2 Timothy 1:1-14
-Luke 17:5-10

(10/13)
-2 Kings 5:1-3; 7-15c
-2 Timothy 2:8-15
-Luke 17:11-19
Check out the official PoP website! Changes are being made daily, and feedback is welcome! Feel free to send me any suggestions: karadbradford@gmail.com
Lutheran Campus Ministry News:
Six LCM members will be traveling to Albuquerque, NM on October 11-13 for the Rocky Mountain Synod-wide LCM retreat. We will be staying in the (tiled) fellowship hall at St. Luke's Lutheran Church. Since we are flying, we are hoping to pack as light as possible. If anyone has sleeping gear that packs small (such as inflatable or "accordian" sleeping pads) that they would be willing to lend us for the weekend, please contact Sarah at sarahcbogen@gmail.com.
Children and Youth Sunday School is happening!
