St. Timothy Lutheran Church Council and Pastor Hamada have been in discussion with Bishop Laurie regarding a more “permanent” term limited call to Pastor Hamada for one year with the possibility of renewal. After hearing from members, a special Congregational Meeting Sunday, April 23 11:15 am voted unanimously to invite Pastor Yukio Hamada to a term call as pastor at Saint Timothy Lutheran Church with a contract to begin May 1, 2023 and end April 30, 2024.
Pastor’s hours are Wednesday, 10-2, Friday 10-2 and Sunday 9-2, preaching, teaching, presiding, pastoral caring, praying, leading, encouraging, baptizing, confirming, marrying, memorializing, communing, shepherding, evaluating needs, outreaching to the community, and researching possible future calls. With approval of the congregation, the pastor and the bishop, the term call may be extended year by year.
It is well.
