The Search Committee is meeting every two weeks and has divided into the following sub-groups:
- Parish Engagement, which will be asking the congregation for input regarding important qualities in looking for the next rector
- Parish Profile, which will be writing the profile that will be posted for candidates to view
- Parish Communication, which will be communicating updates through church services the Sunday Bulletin, the Parish Newsletter and the St. Thomas website
Canon Jesus Reyes and Joanna Shreve have presented ideas to the committee about obtaining input from the congregation in preparation for writing the Parish Profile. The Parish Engagement sub-group will be mailing a survey to every church member in early May. Your input is very important and we are asking your help in returning it in two weeks.
The Search Committee will also be gathering information in mid-May through Sunday Forums after each church service with a follow-up forum in mid-June.
If you have any questions, please contact the Search Committee members: Jim Cobb (chair), Nancy Allgeier, Cal Cornwell, C. J. Gomez, Joe Gutierrez, Jane Houck, Lindsay Jacobson, Chris Kenward, Bob Kunz, Lou Poulain, Ann Stevenson, and Keri Williams.
