As you know, we recently agreed to move forward with HolyCow! Consulting to help us plan our future. You have been selected to participate in the first step which is to conduct a congregational assessment. This assessment will provide a clear picture of who we are as a church and what directions are most important for our future. The tool we'll use is the Congregation Assessment Tool (CAT), which will provide key indicators of our congregational health along with areas of challenge and potential growth. It will help us to collect and understand the range of views that exist at First Presbyterian Church and the possibilities, willingness, capacity and energy for moving our ministry into the future.
The survey will launch on on August 3rd. To access it simply click HERE
A meaning of apocalypse is: to uncover, to reveal. Life today with Covid19 is apocalyptic- exposing the depth of our societal weaknesses and delusions. At the same time, it offers promise for real and substantive change. Are we listening?
The 2020 Summer Soul-stice series, in the time of pandemic, examines our brave new world and the crucial work of:
- naming our losses and grieving what we must let go
- finding courage to set foundations for new community, locally, nationally and globally, where LIFE truly matters
- listening to one another for the possibilities of change that each of us must bring home and into our personal lives
