Advent is a season of waiting. For our congregants, Advent is even more poignant than usual this year, as we step into the future of this ministry, full of hope and expectation for all that God has in store in our first pastoral transition.
St. Lydia’s Call Committee is working with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Metropolitan New York Synod to find our next full-time pastor. As we move through this call process, we are committed to continuing our work: to resist hate, fear, and discrimination in all its forms, to grow as a place where all are welcome, and to reflect the love of Christ in all we do.
Our goal is to raise $40,000 by the end of 2017 to enable us to call our next full-time pastor. We are delighted to announce that we have received a year-end gift of $10,000 from a congregant to kick off this campaign!
Any gift you give will help us fund a new full-time pastor. Recurring gifts make it possible for us to better predict and manage our accounts and expenses. Please donate today.
For those who have supported us in the past, and for you who support us now, we are so thankful. Please keep us in your prayers.
