At the April 26th Council meeting, the Council voted unanimously to invite The GraceWorks church to worship with us for three Sundays in May (12th, 19th, 26th). This does not commit us to anything. But it will give us a foundation to PRAY/think/talk about a possible merger.

There is still a lot of territory between this and a real marriage of the two churches. (Including opportunities to discuss and pray/ including a formal church vote.) But it’s a start... and an exciting one.

Be watching for more details.

Congregational Surveys

Our Pastoral Search Team has compiled and analyzed the two surveys that were completed by our congregation in February, 2019.

The Congregational Profile Survey not only asked several sets of questions about our congregation’s current ministry and the congregation’s involvement, but also sought input on church dynamics and our vision for the future.

We also asked the congregation to complete a second survey, the Ideal Pastor Profile Survey. It focused on our ideal Lead Pastor and will help the Search Team develop a list of the characteristics, qualification, and skills that we will be looking for in our new pastor.

Below are two links that will take you to the results of the surveys:
  • pdfExecutive Summary - The five page Executive Summary provides the highlights of the results of our two surveys with a summary of the written comments by everyone taking the surveys.
  • pdfSurvey Results - This is a detailed 23 page report showing the variation in responses to every single question within the surveys. It is also a record of each and every written response by every person participating in the surveys.
