Board Planning Retreat

The Church Board will be meeting for a special planning retreat on Saturday, August 10 from 10 am until 3 pm.  They will begin with a session with Laura Watson from the Moravian Ministries Foundation to discuss stewardship programs.  They will then have a discussion of a book they have all read, led by Jonathan Sidden.  The book, Connect! by Don Corder, outlines practical steps that have been used in many churches to connect to people in the community that are seeking a place to serve and connect in community, and effectively invite them and integrate them in the church community.  The afternoon session will focus on specifics of adapting Corder’s ideas to our specific circumstances, identifying areas that we need to refine and organize, and shaping our plan for intentional outreach.

We invite all lay leaders of the congregation to read Connect! as well. It is available on Amazon as a Kindle e-book, as a hardback, and on Audible as an audio book.  There is a loan copy in the church office that members may check out after all Board members have finished reading.
