Update from the Church Council

Update from the Church Council

Dear ILC Members,

As you may know, ILC is experiencing a transition period with the retirement of our longtime Pastor, as well as other positions throughout the office and Day School.  We’ve been blessed with several new staff members and our Transitional Pastor, Candice Combs, will be joining us to meet and worship with us at the September 1 services. Her first Sunday to preach will be September 8 which is also Rally Day, the start of a new season and new Sunday School classes!!!

After considering significant input from the Worship and Music Committee, Parish Education Committee, and many congregation members, Council has also voted to adopt a temporary worship schedule beginning September 8 which will be the following:

  • 8:30 am – Parish Hall Worship Service (led by our Sotaria Praise Band)
  • 9:30 am – Sunday School
  • 10:30 am –  Sanctuary Worship Service

September 29, ILC will have only one service at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary and following the service ILC members will be electing a Call Committee at a Congregational meeting and potluck.  There will also be a Ministry Fair where each committee will be represented to answer questions about what that committee does and how it represents the congregation to the church council.

Once the committee is elected, they will begin the call process which includes interviewing potential pastors who will eventually be recommended to the church council and then the congregation as a candidate for our new Senior Pastor. Pastor Combs will be our Transitional Pastor while we are going through this Call Committee process.

With all the changes around us at ILC we want to keep everyone as informed as possible. We also want to invite members, whether past or present, active or inactive, to be involved in all the changes happening.  Come be a part of our mission to thank, praise, honor and serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as we GATHER and worship, GROW in the Word, and SERVE God by serving people.  This is an exciting time at ILC!
