BEYOND the building, I love that phrase! It means that we not only considering making some much needed remodeling and updating of our building infrastructure, but that we are concerned about helping our community and others outside our church walls. It means that we truly want to live out our mission statement of proclaiming, welcoming and serving.
Even though we are still in phase one of our five phase multi-year project, I am excited and hopeful about the outcome. I know that the journey ahead will not be easy, but together with the many different gifts that the Holy Spirit has given each of us we can go forward. To do that we need to know if our members are willing and ready to move forward with trust so that we can take risks and accomplish our goals. Every person at our church is extremely important and necessary to our future success. Now if the time for your thoughts, opinions, and viewpoints.
So won't you please join us at the November 18, 2018 (yes, that’s today!) Congregational Meeting following church service. A light lunch will be provided. We will have elections to council, go over the listening study report, discuss 2018 financials update, as well as 2019 goals and our draft budget for next year.
