Attention Members--Special Congregational Meeting on August 22nd!

The Council is announcing a Special Congregational Meeting at 12:30 on August 22nd to approve the call of Pastor Dianne Wendt to Church of the Cross. At this meeting members will be asked to approve both the call and the compensation package for Pastor Dianne. After those votes, members will also be asked to approve a budget for the remainder of 2021 that will include compensation for our new pastor as part of our semi-annual congregational meeting.

There will be a Meet and Greet for Pastor Dianne Saturday, August 21st from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, at Cross in the Social Hall. She will also be giving the sermon on Sunday the 22nd.
