Editor’s Note » As previously reported, Gary Thurber is transitioning to his new role as the executive secretary for the Lake Union Conference in Berrien Springs, Mich. Today is his first official day on the job for the LUC. He is already missed here in the Rocky Mountain Conference office!
In the meantime, while we wait for a new president to be selected for the Rocky Mountain Conference, we will keep sharing news from the RMC headquarters. Please continue to send us news and stories of what is happening in your churches so we can keep everyone informed.

Presidential Search Process » On Nov. 20, the Rocky Mountain Conference Executive Committee will begin the process of selecting names of individuals who might potentially serve as the next president for the RMC. The committee will be chaired by Mid-America Union president Tom Lemon.
The process for replacing a president is outlined in the RMC Constitution and Bylaws. When the conference needs to replace an elected conference official during the period between quinquennial constituency sessions, the Executive Committee, consisting of elected representatives from around the conference, is tasked with the responsibility to choose the replacement. The chair of the search committee, in the absence of a conference president, is the Mid-America Union president.
Anyone who wishes to submit names for consideration may direct their comments to Elder Lemon via email.
Please join the entire RMC staff in praying for God's guidance and wisdom as the Executive Committee contemplates this important decision.
Franktown Barn Party and Fall Festival » The Franktown Seventh-day Adventist Church will host a barn party on Sunday, Nov. 3, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the home of Larry and Cheryl Romrell.
The event will feature live bluegrass music from New Horizons, bounce houses, slides, a climbing wall, bungee trampolines, hay rides, great food, and more!
Admission is free with a canned food item, and food and games will be available for donations. All proceeds will benefit the Castlewood Christian School.
The event will take place at 441 Russellville Rd., Franktown, Colo.
Zambia Project Update » You may remember that the Rocky Mountain Conference has sponsored the building of a church in Zambia. The challenge was made to each congregation in the conference to raise $350. Many funds have already started flowing in, but we still have a ways to go to reach our combined goal of $45,000.
The concrete foundation and slab for the church have already been poured. Workers are ready to start on the walls and roof. Please share this exciting project with your church families. Working together, we can build a church.
Correction » Last week, we reported about the organization of a new church in New Mexico. We incorrectly referred to it as the Broomfield Hispanic Church. The correct name is the "Bloomfield" Hispanic Church. Our apologies to the members from Bloomfield!
