Living into a new way of ordering our life together

We did it! The process of evaluating and reordering our life together began early in 2018. The methodology chosen was highly participatory and based on what we could learn and observe. The congregation was invited and responded by simply noticing what wasn’t currently working, trying a different approach, and evaluating the results. The investment of time and broad participation early in the process allowed us to move with some confidence to adopt our current structure, even in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

That was hard work. However, the hard work is not yet over. It’s one thing to make a plan! Even a wonderful plan is only paper until it is enacted and embodied, practiced, proven. On this page, you’ll find our newly adopted constitution, information about current ministries and contact people, and documents meant to help guide our next steps in resourcing and establishing new ministries or reviving existing ministries.
