February 2011 Board Briefing

Hispanic Outreach Pastor Call Committee

The Hispanic Outreach Call Committee completed their work and at a Special Assembly the congregation voted to extend a divine call to Pastor Steven Deombeleg of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Tucson, Arizona. Please keep Pastor Deombeleg and his family in your prayers as they consider this call. Pray especially for safety during upcoming travel and for comfort for the entire family as they deal with Pastor Deombeleg’s father-in-law’s grave illness. Any questions for the Call Committee may be directed to Al Kehe at 847-963-8656 or alkehe@comcast.net.

Financial Review Committee

The Board of Directors would like to thank you for your continued generous giving to the ministries of Prince of Peace. God is using your gifts to accomplish some incredible things for His Kingdom! As the table illustrates, 2010 was a challenging year for Prince of Peace financially. The Board asks that you prayerfully and carefully re-evaluate your giving. Consider how the Lord has blessed you, discern if He is enabling you to give generously and sacrificially, and ask Him to lead you. We know that He will! Any questions for the Financial Review Committee may be directed to Mike Radochonski at 847-991-0993 or m_shonski@yahoo.com

Board Appointment

Jim Durán has been a faithful and dedicated member of the Board of Directors since June 1, 2009. It is with regret that we announce that he will not be able to complete his full term which is set to expire May 31, 2012. According to the Board’s Policy, vacancies of this kind are to be filled by an appointment made by the Board. After careful and prayerful consideration, the Board extended an appointment to fill the remainder of Jim’s term to Pete Barber. We welcome Pete to the Board and wish Jim the very best as he continues to use his gifts to serve the congregation and the Lord in other capacities.
