Transition Team News

We are drawing closer to decisions about the future of our church, which is not really "ours", but God’s. This work and community is larger than its members and our purpose is to
join God in what God
is already doing around here.

In November, we spent a whole Sunday seeking to align ourselves with the movement of this Holy Spirit. While there is no one right answer to the question of how to serve God with what we have, we clearly have energy and hope, among other resources, for exploring new ways to serve God. This direction will require leadership in the form of a coordinating pastor whose specific job description is yet to be developed.

The Transition Team continues to meet and also is in conversation with leaders of Second Baptist Church in Liberty, to build upon some ideas that have been raised regarding a partnership.

On December 29th, our worship service included time to hear and discuss results and some recommendations from the Transition Team. A report of any recommendations will be sent to the church via email and newsletter.
