During the summer and early fall of 2015, the Church Council sought nominations for individuals to serve on the pastoral search committee for our next settled pastor. On October 25, 2015 the Church Council presented their selection of ten individuals. The congregation voted approval of the selection and the committee began meeting in November. They were officially commissioned during worship on November 29, 2015.
In January 2016, the Pastoral Search Committee completed a Local Church Profile for our church and our pastoral position was posted on the national UCC website. The committee is now in the process of receiving and reviewing ministerial profiles of candidates who have expressed an interest in being our next settled pastor. Ultimately, they will conduct interviews and reference checks, and finally will select a candidate to be called as the 28th settled pastor of the First Congregational Church of Lebanon, CT.
