PoP Name Badges

To help Pastor Kevin get to know members of the congregation, we will continue to wear name badges on Sunday during worship.   At this time, we are working on updating the PoP name badges.  Please contact Linda in the office if you can't locate yours.  

Name badges are located on the hallway wall in the Sanctuary narthex.  Also, please remember to return your name badge after worship.  Thanks.

Member Response Requested!

Congregational Advisory Survey

The church Council is asking members to participate in a brief advisory survey in order to help inform the Council’s decision-making on an important issue.

PURPOSE/BACKGROUND     The Council would like to know your preference about possible changes in the Sunday worship and Christian Education schedules.  As you may recall, at the annual congregational meeting in January, this topic was discussed.  The rationale for making a change would be to allow a full hour for Sunday School/Education between the two services thereby enabling the Pastor to participate in this important activity.  This concept has the support of the Council and our new Pastor.

PROCEDURE     Each member of PoP may vote once in the survey by responding at the link below.  The deadline for voting is 8 am on Thursday, July 20.  The results will be shared with the congregation.

Any change that is approved will begin on Sunday, August 20, 2017, for a one-year trial period.

Pastor Debra Jiminez Ordination

July 2nd at PoP was certainly filled with a flurry of emotions. Now Pastor Debra Jiminez was ordained after several years of training with the ELCA's TEEM program!

Bishop James Gonia of the Rocky Mountain Synod, the Synod where Pr. Debra will now be presiding, was in attendance as well as Pastors from throughout the Southeastern Synod.
