Pastoral Transition Update - Ministry Vision Discussion

Saturday, January 25, from 5:00-6:30

Light refreshments for adults.      Childcare with pizza, movie & crafts

Dear Members and attenders of Grace Presbyterian,

As you know, we will have a congregation gathering on Saturday January 25 from 5:00 to 6:30 to discuss the progress made in pastoral transition.  The ministry vision committee, a subcommittee of Session and working with Rev. Will Spokes, has produced a summary of the group discussions about the vision of the church for five years from now.  Session has approved this Ministry Vision document for our conversation. 

The purpose of this vision statement – and the conversation we’ll have together on Saturday – is to give guidance to the next step. Ultimately the document and our conversation around it will help us frame the job description for our next senior pastor.  

Note again that our conversation on Saturday night along with this document will guide the next steps in the pastoral transition process. As such we hope that you can attend on Saturday and participate in the conversation.  Remember that there will also be another “Coffee with Will” session, 12:15 on Sunday, for those that either cannot make the meeting or would like additional conversation time.  

From the transition leadership team,  

Michael Anderson and Curt Wilbur
