Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Pastor Hecht’s last day was July 31, 2022, so it is now imperative that we institute steps that will eventually lead to the procurement of a new pastor for Abiding Savior.

One of the initial responsibilities was to develop a survey form in order to have current information from our members regarding their desires and expectations in a new pastor, as well as to enable members to express their feelings about our church at this point in our history.

The following survey provides the opportunity for us all to share together in assessing who we are as a church, and what we want in a Pastor. Your responses are anonymous. By completing this survey, it ensures that your views are heard by the Call Committee and will give them the necessary feedback to aid in procuring a pastor that meets the needs of our congregation.

The final deadline for returning the form is August 29, 2022. Everyone who is a member, an Associate Member or regular attendee is urged to complete the survey. Students between the ages of 12 and 19, who feel they are a part of this church, even though not members, are welcome to participate. Forms will also be available in the Narthex for the following two Sundays, and the church office until August 29, 2022, if you wish to fill it out on paper.

The Call Committee’s responsibilities will require wisdom and strength much beyond our collective abilities. You can be most helpful to the committee by keeping it in your daily prayers.

Your cooperation and earliest return of your completed survey form is greatly appreciated.

The Call Committee
