Six Week Bible Study

What is "The Hole in Our Gospel" Six-Week Quest?

The compelling true story of a corporate CEO who set aside worldly success for something far more significant.

Sign up and order the Study Kit ($10) at the Discipleship Table or contact Barbara Stickler at (352)633-5821.

Feed     the     School     Children

We will be packing food bags for the children on Thursday, February 5, at 9;00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Church.

Urgent     Need     for     Bakers

We need bakers for Sunday’s Fellowship Coffee for all services, but especially for the 9:45 a.m. service.

If you participate, you are a team that brings in goodies 4-5 times a year. You only need to bring in 3 dozen of whatever you choose. We also need team captains.

Contact Judy Etheridge (f.etheridge@gmail.com or 352-430-0894) with the service you attend, phone number and e-mail. Thanks so much! 

Operation     Homebound     Drivers     Needed

You might be wondering...why are we asking for more drivers? The wonderful folks who responded a bit ago have either been assigned permanent routes or the days the are free don't correspond to program needs and they have agreed to be substitute drivers. So...we have Monday and Wednesday covered for the second route; just need Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

We need 2 people per day who can complete the program application and a background check.

Please search your hearts and also ask your neighbors and friends.

This route goes around and across 466 A. If you have been over there recently I'm sure you have seen the number of homes that have been built or will be built. This means OHB numbers will increase and that, of course, means the need for additional drivers.

Come and ride along on Route 10; our current #10 drivers would welcome you and answer any questions you may have.

Call me and a ride-along can be arranged.

North Lake Presbyterian Church
Senior Pastor Search Process


Overview of the Pastor Nominating Search

Pastor Search Nominating Committee

Pastor Search F.A.Q.

November / December 2014
PNC   Committee   Update

  1. The PNC developed and released a survey; 374 members responded to the survey, with the majority responding on-line. There were more than 300 additional comments provided by members to the survey. The results of the survey and the additional comments were incorporated in the Ministry Information Form (“MIF”) and will be considered during the entire process by the PNC. 
  2. The PNC held two Open Forum meetings (informational meetings) for the members and a total of approximately 90 - 100 members attended.  A verbal status was provided by Chairperson, Bob Hazlett; questions were then asked by the attendees and answered by the PNC and Berry Long, the Central Florida Presbytery Committee on Ministry liaison, at the December 9 Open Forum.
  3. The PNC completed the Ministry Information Form and submitted the MIF to the Session for Approval. The Session approved the MIF on December 16, 2014.
  4. The Session approved MIF will be submitted to the Committee on Ministry (“COM”) acting on behalf of Central Florida Presbytery for approval at the January scheduled meeting of the Committee on Ministry.
The primary goals for January/February 2015 are:
  1. Upon the approval of the MIF, publish the MIF for prospective applicants on the PCUSA Church Leadership Connection website in order to receive Personal Information Forms (“PIF”) from potential Head of Staff Pastor candidates;
  2. Publicize the position through all other appropriate methods to identify and reach potential candidates;
  3. Network for recommendations from North Lake members and other referrals,
  4. Begin to review Pastor Information Forms (“PIF”) as they are submitted.
After a short break for Christmas and the New Year week, the PNC plans to meet weekly, or as needed, starting in January once the MIF is approved by the Central Florida Presbytery. 
The PNC wishes to thank the members for their submission of the survey with comments, for their support and prayers.   The committee hopes you had a special Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and the committee asks for your continued prayers.


September/October   2014   Update

As we move forward, we want to keep you informed about our process and our progress.  Our goal is to provide a monthly update on the North Lake web site and the monthly newsletter and/or church bulletin.   

On October 8, 2014, the PNC had their first meeting with the Presbytery Liaison, Berry Long, and the Executive Presbyter, Rev Dr. Daniel Williams.  The members of the committee elected the following officers:  Dr. Bob Hazlett, Chairperson, Sue Kirkpatrick, Vice Chairperson, and Rose Gorman, Corresponding Secretary.   The PNC met two additional times in October and the discussions centered around qualifications desired for a new Senior Pastor and the development of a survey to be sent to the membership for their input.  The committee is meeting weekly at the present.

The primary goals in November are: 1) develop a survey in order to gather information from the congregation; 2) plan two informational meetings for the congregation for early December; 3) work on the Ministry Information Form (the “MIF” is used to describe the church and ministry to potential Sr. Pastor candidates; and, 4) continue to work with the Presbytery.

The PNC plans to meet weekly and the committee asks for your continuing prayers.
