The team working with LEAD in the “Wake Up” process to develop a purpose statement met on Sunday, December 18. This program emphasizes both spiritual growth and problem solving We worked on our group covenant, a document that will guide our work together as we continue this process. We also worked on assigning specific tasks to group members. Our next meeting will be Sunday, January 8, at 11:15 and we plan to meet weekly over the coming months.

The Executive Committee put together a LEAD team to work through a facilitated program called “Wake Up”. The Wake Up program is a 10-step process that draws on ancient Christian prayer practices, faithful discernment, and strategic thinking process to clarify congregational Core Values and Purpose in alignment with God’s mission. It’s about mission identity formation. The LEAD Team will update the congregation on its work that is a stepping stone to preparing a call for a permanent pastor.
