Members to Elect Council, Vote on Call

A meeting of the congregation has been called for Sunday, June 5 between worship services for the purpose of electing a church council and extending a call to Pastor Gabriel Marcano.

We have learned that for Pastor Gabriel to move forward in the immigration process as smoothly as possible, it would be to his advantage he be officially called and ordained to serve as a pastor of the ELCA. Rather than the current agreement as a temporary interim at Emaus, a term call as Pastor of Emaus would provide the stability needed to be granted the green card.

Una reunión dela congregación ha sido convocada para el domingo 5 de junio a las 10:00 a.m. con el propósito de elegir a un consejo de la iglesia y que se extiende una llamada al Pastor Gabriel Marcano.

Hemos aprendido que para que el pastor Gabriel pueda avanzar en el proceso de inmigración lo más rápido posible, debeser llamado y ordenado para servir como Pastor de la ELCA oficialmente. En elactual acuerdo como pasante temporal en Emaús, pasara a ser Pastor, proporcionándole la estabilidad necesaria para conceder su permiso de trabajo.

Este no es un llamado para servir como el pastor bilingüe que requiere el perfil de nuestra misión. Los fondos presupuestados previamente asignados para un asistente pastoral y pastor latino se utilizarían para cubrir este puesto de trabajo.
