Christmas Greetings to you as we celebrate our Lord and Savior’s birth.
In case you aren’t aware, we want to let you know about an upcoming change. Those who were in attendance during the Saturday night service on December 1, participated in a survey about the possibility of discontinuing the Saturday night service. After reviewing the survey results, a large majority stated that they would be willing to switch to Sunday mornings. We have decided to discontinue the Saturday night service effective 12/22.
This was a difficult decision, but we believe this will improve the overall health of the staff and their families; and therefore, our church. If you currently attend the Saturday night service, please worship with us at one of our Sunday services.
We are continuing to search for a Lead Pastor and have several excellent candidates. Please pray that God will reveal His choice. Meanwhile, we are encouraged by Don Wilson’s leadership as he serves in the role of Interim Lead Pastor. As a church, we will continue to seek God’s guidance in building our congregation into fully committed followers of Christ and to reach the community and the world in the name of Jesus.
Together we will be a church with worldwide impact for the glory of God!
The Elders at Southeast
Exciting things are happening at Southeast. Don Wilson has become our Interim Lead Pastor. Dr. Wilson is an engaging leader and speaker who recently retired from Christ’s Church of the Valley in the Phoenix area. Christ’s Church was, and is, one of the largest, fastest growing churches in the country. We believe that Southeast will benefit greatly from his deep commitment to Christ, dynamic leadership skills, many years of experience, and desire to serve during this time of transition, while we seek God’s guidance in selecting a new Lead Pastor. We are looking forward to hearing Don give the message this weekend (November 17-18) as he begins his ministry at Southeast. Come and welcome Don.
