I am very happy to share with you that the Board of Trustees held its annual retreat on August 17 and came out of it with focus, energy and goals for the coming year.
Our theme for 2020 is “Putting Energy into Action” and at the core of this initiative is Stewardship.
Our Mission Statement is three-fold:
- To be excellent stewards of our spiritual home.
- To strive to recognize and acknowledge our service to each other.
- To empower and encourage each other to make positive change in the wider world.
You will be hearing much more about Stewardship in the following months as there are many and varied needs inside and outside of our church.
To that end, I want to echo my message from last month and ask you to reflect upon what skills and abilities you might have and be willing to offer, whether that is in physical activity, planning or management of resources.
There will be many opportunities in the coming year to help maintain our thriving, active and loving community, both for the immediate future and as part of a long-term vision. I hope you will be engaged with us in whatever capacity you are willing and able to share.
As always, my very best wishes to you all.
