New City East Lake is Calling Jon Storck!

On Sunday, October 7, the members of New City East Lake voted in an overwhelming majority to call Jon Storck as the next Senior Pastor of our church!

As a church, we celebrate that God and the Holy Spirit brought unity in heart and mind to our members, and that he gave us confidence in God's direction for our church in providing Jon as our next Senior Pastor. Throughout the congregational meeting, members asked thoughtful questions about the search process, offered feedback about Jon and Jen's visit in September, and heard testimony from the search committee about their recommendation to call Jon. We praise God for a grace-filled meeting!

So what's next? As we look towards a transition between pastors, in the coming weeks our Session will be sure to inform the church about the timeline of that change, how it will work functionally, and how you all can participate as the members of NCEL.

Today, join with us in thankfulness.

Thank God for Jim Pickett, who God provided 10 years ago to lead our church. Jim, Michele, Noah and Elena have served NCEL with humble faithfulness, and it is good and right to celebrate their service and contributions to our church!

Thank God for East Lake Neighborhood and the people that fill its streets.

Thank God for our unity with Christ, without which we could have no unity in our body.

Thank God for his provision in Jon Storck. We serve a good, faithful God who knows our needs, loves to to provide for His people, and gives it to us in His perfect timing.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
