SEARCH COMMITTEE:

During worship on July 26, the congregation commissioned, and gave its blessing to, the Search committee that will soon begin the crucial process of seeking our next pastor. They are a group of talented individuals who bring a range of experience and perspectives to the search. They have made a major commitment; we can assist them by communicating who we are as a church and what we hope to become, and by respecting their adherence to confidentiality. Here they are with a short item about each:

Ernie LaFontaine: led Re-thinking Church initiative
Bruce Smith: Vice-moderator
Kathy Shaw: active in Earth Advocates
Bonnie Holden: faithful member of the choir
Nora Parsons: former moderator, deacon, trustee, youth leader
Barbara True-Weber: whose passion led to the Earth Advocates
George Sohn: helped initiate Sunday suppers
Lisa Plummer: mother of Emma and Erica
Eric Webster: former Moderator and ONA member

The Bennington County Coalition for the Homeless invites faith communities to adopt a room at the transitional living facility at Thatcher House pm Pleasant St. This involves making sure the room is painted and cleaned and welcoming to incoming families, as well as providing furnishings and household items for the family. If this is something you’d like to be involved with, please speak to Bruce Lee-Clark.
