Do you have dreams for what the future holds for our congregation? Are there ministries that you would like to see us invest in if we had the money to do so?
Our church has been the recipient of a sizeable gift from a deceased member’s estate. The Board of Trustees approved a motion (recommended by the Permanent Endowment Committee), to hold Small Group Listening Events in order to give every member of the church an opportunity to speak of their dreams for the future of the church and any possible uses of the special gift.
The Church Council Chairperson, asked that these Small Group Listening Events be concluded in the fall of 2017, with an Initial Report given at the December 12 meeting of Church Council meeting at 7:00 p.m. and a Final Report given at the February 13, 2018 Church Council meeting at 7:00 p.m.
A Final Proposal will be presented to a specially called Charge Conference in early spring 2018 for the specific purpose of “officially” endorsing our all-church decision mindful of the future of the church in the uses of the special gift and other such potential gifts.
Contact the Church Office (620-227-8181) to be included in one of the fifteen (15) Listening Events, this fall.
