Sunday, June 10
2:30 to 5:00 p.m.
Pacifica Synod, ELCA
1801Parkcourt Place, Bldg. C
God calls all of us to live a life of discipleship and service. God calls some as rostered ministers to serve and equip others within the church to reach the world. So, what has the Holy Spirit been bugging you about lately? Perhaps she is using a still, small voice inviting you to consider ministry in your future or shouting rather loudly that God has an idea for you? In 1 Samuel 3, we learn that the first thing we should do when God calls is to listen. Then we should follow up with prayer, conversation, and contacting the synod office to begin the journey to serve.
If God’s tickling your spirit with the possibility of serving through a Word & Sacrament (Pastor) or Word & Service (Deacon) ministry in the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), join us at the Lutheran Center for Mission & Learning (Pacifica Synod Office) on Sunday, June 10 for hors d’oeuvres, conversation, and information. We will talk about the candidacy process and seminary. In addition, Andrea Arey (from Portico) will be with us to teach us more about “the wholeness wheel.”
There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration to reserve your spot is required. Please follow this link to register. Don’t wait, space is limited and the deadline to register is June 4.
You are invited to bring a friend, your pastor, or a family member or spouse to join you. There are times when Pastors, Deacons, and congregation members know a friend or congregant within their midst in whom they see the possibility that God is calling them into rostered ministry. Reserve space to come and explore the possibilities with them.
If God is calling, “listen.” I’m proof that God is tenacious and doesn’t give up. If you have any questions, please contact the synod office at 714.692.2791 or me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. – Pastor Terry Tuvey Allen
