The Renewal Team is excited to announce the release of our Strategic Plan 2018. Based on input from the congregation received during our assessment phase last fall, and conversation with the Church Council, we have developed a four prong approach to renewal. Our four sections are Congregational Care, Community Connection, Facility Development, and Funding for Ministry. Throughout February, 2018, we will be putting together seven teams that will work on aspects of each of these different directions.

And, yes, we will need you!

Take a look at the Strategic Plan, below, and think about where you might fit in. Are you passionate about any of these areas? Let us know by contacting us or the church office if you are!

Our seven teams are:

  • Congregational Care
  • Communication
  • Community Connection
  • Capital Improvement Plan
  • Mission and Building Use
  • Growing the Endowment
  • Creative Stewardship Approaches
