June 10, 2018 To: Members of Zwingli U.C.C. – Paoli

This letter notice is being sent to you per constitutional requirements to notify Zwingli Paoli members of a call for a new half-time pastor.

The Search Committee on your behalf has worked diligently with the Conference office in preparing the Church Profile and the Conference has recommended a candidate which the committee interviewed and heard preach. On the recommendation of the Search Committee, the Church Council has approved a financial package for a half-time pastor.

The candidate we are recommending is Rev. Dr. Richard W. Pleva, who prefersto be called “Pastor Rich,” and currently resides in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin. His bio will be shared with the congregation on June 10 and June 17 at the Sunday services.

Rev. Pleva will preach at the Sunday service on June 24, 2018. A “meet and greet” social will be held on Saturday, June 23 between the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. at Zwingli-Paoli for the purpose of meeting Rev. Pleva and his wife. (At 6 p.m. Rev. Pleva will spend 10 minutes introducing himself and his wife to us ifyou’d like to plan your arrival accordingly.) Sandwiches, drinks and dessert will be provided.

We strongly encourage members to attend both the “meet and greet” social andthe sermon by Rev. Pleva.

A congregational meeting will be held on Sunday, June 24 immediately after church for congregation members to vote via paper ballot on a permanent half- time call to extend to Rev. Pleva. We ask for God’s blessings on these processesand call.
