Although the Board of Trustees does not meet in July and August, planning has been continuing. The Board of Trustees will be convening a second Board Retreat on September 10th where we will be developing draft goals for the congregation, the board, and our minister. This will be followed by the regular board meeting on September 13th.
To engage members of the congregation in conversation about our future, we have planned open forums following the Teaching Thursday format with dinner at 6pm and presentation and discussion beginning at 7pm. Please hold the following dates on your calendar:
The Future of our Congregation – sharing goals and engaging the
congregation in conversation – Thursday, September 22, 2016,
Closing the Financial Gap – updating the congregation on our
financial situation and seeking input on how we close the financial
gap – Thursday, October 27,
The Future of our Congregation, Session 2 – Engaging more of the
congregation in conversation – Thursday, December 8, 2016,
We want to include our snowbirds but cannot afford to wait too long to begin the conversations. Hopefully, the session in December will allow almost all members to participate.
Let me leave you with this quotation:
“Be content to progress in slow steps until you have legs to run and wings with which to fly.” - Padre Pio
