We celebrated "God's Work, Our Hands" Sunday by organizing a work day with St. Stephen Lutheran Church. Our members teamed up to complete painting and yard work on an InnBetween home for a family experiencing
homelessness. The InnBetween Program of Lutheran Social Services of North Florida provides homes and support services for as long as two years to help families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Workers tackled the
project on September 13. They transformed the house with fresh paint and new sod. Many thanks to all who offered a helping hand! See more pictures here.

Here is Sunday's Assistants Schedule.
The Grace Lutheran Call Committee has received a list of three candidates. We have interviewed two candidates and observed them preaching. We plan to interview the third candidate in January.
We also have answers from the Synod to the following questions from the congregation about the call process:
Question: How many other congregations in the Florida-Bahamas Synod are conducting a call process?
Answer: We have 43 congregations in some sort of transition. We are currently working on 7 call lists.
Question: How many pastors have inquired about GLC's opportunity?
Answer: We have looked closely at about 18 candidates. Only one “inquired.” Most were eliminated because of lack of youth and family interest. One accepted a call elsewhere. Some just weren’t a good
match. Several wanted a higher salary.
Question: Is there an average amount of time a congregation takes to conduct the call process?
Answer: The entire call process is purely individualized. Unless there is major conflict or trauma of sorts it is Bishop Schaefer’s desire to move congregations through the process quickly.
Here's an overview of our call process so far.
