Information about New Beginnings
NEW BEGINNINGS—Monday, May 18, 7:00-9:00 pm
The next step in the New Beginnings process is an all-congregation meeting 7 PM Monday May 18 in our church.
Dr. Ruth Fletcher will lead the meeting. Dr. Fletcher is from Great Falls, Montana, where she works with the Disciples of Christ and New Beginnings.
In that meeting, Dr. Fletcher will explain to all of us the process that we will use to make Big Decisions about the life of our church.
The process includes participation in a series of small group discussions led by people in the church who have already volunteered. In those meetings, we will learn what is in our church assessment report.
The Group Discussion leaders, meeting dates, times, and places are listed below. Please sign up for one of the groups in church May 17, or on Monday May 18 at the 7 PM meeting in the church.
We hope to see all of you 7 PM Monday May 18 and in the small group meetings!
