President Charlie Scholz
On the Way to a Great Church!
One of the ways we evaluate what we are doing at our Church is to compare our programs and policies to our Vision and Mission. In other words, we should ask: Where do we want to be? and How can we get there?
One of our Board tasks this year was to come up with new Vision and Mission statements that reflect where we, as a Church, are currently going and what we are doing to achieve that vision.
After a great deal of discussion and deliberation the Board has come up with these statements.
Our Vision is: To be a Transformational Force for Love and Justice in Our Community.
Our Mission is: To gather to inspire spiritual growth, to care for each other and our community, to seek truth and act for justice in the world.
Our Bylaws require us to have a congregational vote to approve both statements before they are officially adopted. But the Board has decided that before we ask for your approval, we would like your input. So on Sunday July 14, after the 10:30 Service, we will meet in the Sanctuary with you to discuss the new Statements. This will not be a voting meeting, just a Listening session. We want to know what you think.
The Board will meet on July 17 to discuss your input and make any revisions we think are necessary. Then we’ll bring these statements to the Membership for a vote at a later date.
In faith, Charlie Scholz, Board of Trustees President
