As of 2019, we are renewing our congregation’s strategic plan.


   In August, 2018 the Board of Trustees charged a Strategic Planning Committee to oversee strategic planning, ministerial assessment, and board assessment in a comprehensive renewal of our congregation’s strategic plan. The committee consults with and reports to Trustees, Coordinating Council, and members.


    Planning started in the fall of 2018 and will conclude at our May 2019 annual meeting.
