Mission Planning Update - March 2013
We are excited to see our Mission
Plan start to grow!
The seeds have been planted and the four teams are beginning to form.
We held an initial “Kick-Off” meeting for the
Leaders/Co-Leaders of the teams on February 12th.
Next steps are for the 4 teams to
hold their individual team kick-off meetings and begin their planning
process. Each of the teams will
determine what goals they want to accomplish in this first phase. These ideas
will be presented to the Mission Guiding Team, Church Council and the Capital
The Young Adult team had their
Kick-Off meeting on February 16. The Families of all kinds, People of all
abilities are scheduled to hold their Kick-Off meeting on March 5. The Mission Territory Team is still looking for a Leader/Co-Leader. The Capital
Campaign Team is tentatively scheduled to begin their work in April/May, after
the other three teams have developed their mission plans.
There is still time to participate
in the planning process. People who are interested in joining these teams are
encouraged to contact the Project Leaders/Co-Leaders directly, or a member of
the Mission Guiding Team if you have questions.
Strategic Planning Update - Fall 2014
We are now referring to our Mission Planning process as Strategic Planning.
Various Writing Team were formed over the summer around the 7 initiatives.
These initiatives were a result of both congregational survey, along with individual and group interviews.
These 7 drafts will now be consolidated in 1 plan to present to the congregation at the annual meeting in 2015.
