~~~ ANNOUNCEMENTS ~~~
The Middle Spring Temporary/Interim Pastor Search Committee is pleased to introduce Rev. Edward Blank, who will be serving Middle Spring as our transitional pastor while we work through the Pneu Matrix program and complete our search for a permanent pastor. Pastor Ed, as he prefers to be called, is a Teaching Elder within the Carlisle Presbytery. He also serves as treasurer of the Presbytery. Pastor Ed graduated from the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity and from the Philadelphia Biblical University. Before his ministry, Pastor Ed achieved several other collegiate degrees and worked as an entrepreneur. He lives in Warfordsburg with his wife, Gilda. They have three adult children, seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren with another one on the way. Pastor Ed and Gilda enjoy spending time with their family and pets (4 ducks, two cats, 25 chickens, and a hopeful addition of a couple of horses). We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for Middle Spring and this next chapter for us and Pastor Ed!
THE CHURCH ASSESSMENT TOOL.
Our church will enter a time of discernment from August 30th to September 20th, in which we will gather information to help guide some of our future decisions. Our Session has authorized the implementation of The Church Assessment Tool (CAT) that will hopefully provide a clearer picture of who we are and where we could go as a church. Each member 16 years or older will be asked to complete an anonymous survey online that will take about 30 minutes.
The CAT website: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MIDDLESPRINGPCPA
For those without access to computers at home, computers will be available after church on September 5, 12, and 19. Paper copies with large white envelopes will also be available. Please return your completed paper survey in the envelope provided to the church office by September 19. This survey is very important to our church. Our future together is dependent on your participation and honest answers.
Remember the survey is anonymous. Our church will only receive back the total results.
If you have questions, please contact a member of our team.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
