CALL COMMITTEE UPDATE With the completion and approval of ECLC’s Ministry Site Profile last week, the Minneapolis Area Synod is preparing a list of candidates for consideration by the Call Committee. ECLC members are invited to recommend candidates for consideration. Please complete a form available at the sign-up center and return it to the church office. Recommendations must be received by June 9, 2019.

This week the call committee is meeting with Pastor John Hulden from the Minneapolis Area Synod. He is the Assistant to the Bishop, Ann Svennungsen, and will be our Synod representative as we move through the call process. Questions regarding the call process can be addressed to the call committee chair, Whitney Hansen.
