Call Committee

Call Committee Update  
 
Bishop Patricia Lull met with the Call Committee on February 19 to provide an orientation to the call process. Bishop Lull will be our Synod contact as we move forward. 
 
In  the next step of the call process, you can get involved. The Call Committee invites you to nominate an ELCA-rostered Pastor whom you believe should be considered for OSLC's call. If you know of such a Pastor, please complete the form that will be available on the Welcome Desk at the church and return the completed form no later than March 13.
 
As Bishop Lull said, we have a lot to be excited about at Our Savior's. We hope that you share the Call Committee's excitement during this important process, and we ask that you keep the Call Committee in your prayers.
