The Pastor Nominating Committee is pleased to recommend the call of Rev. Michael P. Rucker to the position of Pastor to the First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood. Michael is currently the Interim Pastor of FPCE and will make an excellent full-time called Pastor to our FPCE family.
After a complete and diligent search of 88 Pastor Information Forms (PIFs) and numerous interviews (not to mention a lot of discussion and prayer), we believe that we are being led by the Holy Spirit to call Rev. Michael to full time service here at our church.
We have asked Session to add the call to the docket for the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, December 7th, and are notifying our members accordingly. During this meeting, we will have the first reading of next years budget and also the following:
-Receive and Vote on Rev. Michael Rucker's call
-Receive and Vote on the terms of the call
-Vote to dissolve the PNC
We plan to have an official welcome for Rev. Michael in the near future when we have his Installation Service at FPCE.
Pastor Nominating Committee thanks all of you for your support, prayers and suggestions, in this vital decision for the life of our congregation.
