Congregational Council sets strategic plan

It was a pleasure for the council to share with you our one-page strategic plan, including our vision, values and priorities. We are finding a great deal of energy in the values statement, “We are guided by our commitment to move forward together in compassion, honesty and grace.”  If you didn’t pick up a copy the weekend we discussed it, you’ll find it posted HERE..

The topics the council will be helping to move forward over the next couple of months include:

  • 2018 budget
  • Decisions about the stewardship and disposition of the properties across Marion Street
  • Opportunities for the congregation to work with the Transition Team in the development of our Ministry Site Profile, a major step in the pastoral call process. The profile answers questions about who we are and who we are seeking as a pastoral leader.
  • The property development plan and the financing of the building project.

We ask your continuing prayers and support for our pastors, staff and lay leaders as we navigate through a busy transitional year.

Below is information on the informational sessions or discussions scheduled for some of these topics:
