A CALL EXTENDED...A CALL ACCEPTED!
The Search & Call Committee is very pleased to announce that Reverend Richard Malmberg has accepted the offered position of sitting pastor of the Little Home Church by the Wayside!
Following the delivery of his candidating sermon on April 24, 2016, while he and his wife, Jane, had been shown to a quiet area in an adjacent building, the congregation voted overwhelmingly to accept the unanimous recommendation of the Council and extend the offer of pastorship to Reverend Malmberg. His acceptance brings to a joyous conclusion a period of almost two years since our previous pastor retired, including approximately one year during which the S & C Committee studied the profiles of over 50 candidates who were interested in serving LHC. Selecting from this large candidate group, S & C recommended only Richard Malmberg to the Council. The Malmbergs are preparing to relocate from West Newton MA by July. Soon thereafter our new pastor will assume his pastoral duties with LHC. We welcome Pastor Malmberg, his wife, Jane, and when they are in residence, their sons Oscar and Max. The Council's acceptance of S&C's recommendation together with the congregation's election of the candidate bring to an official close the duties of the Committee.
