Pastor Thad's Departure
In case you missed the video and email earlier this week, The Elders wanted to communicate some difficult news. Pastor Thad submitted his resignation to the Elder Board last week. The board was very disappointed and surprised, but after much conversation and prayer; and even a lot of challenging of Pastor Thad, we reluctantly accepted Thad’s resignation. If you have not already watched, please watch the below video for a better explanation and to hear our hearts.
This news leaves us with a range of emotions and feelings and no doubt a lot of questions. Thad plans to preach this coming Sunday and will share more about how he has seen God calling him during this season. He plans to be around through the end of October. So, there should be ample time to connect with him over the coming weeks. It is important to note that there is no moral failure or any negative that has led to Pastor Thad's resignation.
The Elders and Pastors are available to you as well to answer questions you may have and to walk this with you. We will be communicating with you via emails and videos to keep you informed of our future plans and next steps as we formulate those and seek the Holy Spirit’s leading in our next steps.
Pastor Thad was also able to share more of his heart in After The Sermon this week with Pastor David and Tami. Please consider watching that as well to hear more of his heart in this difficult situation.
