The Search Committee has found a solution as we seek the best minister for our church and meetinghouse.
Our search found few candidates that wish to live in the parsonage and in our community. While some members are ok with that, most would rather take some extra time to find a minister that will live in and be a part of the day to day life of our community and neighborhood. To give us more time and to explore other options, the duties of Minister will be shared by Charlotte Weltzin and Julianne Belloli for the next six months (October thru March). The split will make it possible for each of them to fill in the minister duties while still maintaining their other work. We ask that you support them through this journey and also offer your input to the Search Committee of how this is meeting your needs. This feedback will influence the reevaluation in six month and your input is crucial to the vitality of CCNOT.
Remember that this is your Community Church and your thoughts and opinions are vital in helping to guide us to find a minister that will meet the needs of the our members, friends, and neighbors for the present and future.
Charlotte Weltzin: Charlotte has been serving the Community Church since 2014 as the yoga teacher and as pulpit supply. In 2018, she became a primary fill in lay minister (sharing duties with Julie) during the Search for a new minister. She has been studying faith and spirituality for many years and has a strong personal spiritual practice. She enjoys supporting others on their journeys of faith, whether that is through Walking with God, Walking with Christ, Walking with Spirit, or discovering how to walk with a deeper Grace in the world. She considers herself a “community minister”, seeking to support all peoples on their journey, truly embodying CCNOT’s mantra that “All are Welcome“. She is honored to be called upon in the transition between ministers to minister to the people of the Community Church & Meetinghouse and seeks to guide others to find comfort, peace, and joy through community with one another and the Grace of God.
