Special Congregational Meeting, Sunday, August 17, 2014
immediately following the Worship Service
St. Paul’s has enjoyed a 175 year history that is rich with traditions, accomplishments and memories, and now we are at a crossroads. How will that history be extended into the future?
A committee has been working long and hard on a Proposal for a 5-Year Plan to revitalize and transform St. Paul’s, by building on its proud heritage, and seeking to meet the needs of modern day life. The resulting Proposal is attached. It is imperative that we all become familiar with the Proposed 5-Year Plan, and are prepared to discuss it, and then vote on it at the Congregational Meeting, Sunday, August 17th.
This is a PROPOSED Plan only. Suggestions and modifications to it will be encouraged at the meeting. But in order for us to move forward, the Plan needs to be a Congregational initiative. And so, MOA is seeking your input, your endorsement, and your active involvement.
Please use the Form, below, to submit your Feedback about the Proposed 5-Year Plan. Complete it, and either return it to the church office, drop it in the collection plate on Sunday, or email your Feedback to Pat Wheeler (firstname.lastname@example.org), on or before August 17. Additional copies of the form may be picked up at the church or printed from our website www.spiritaliveon65.org.
The 5-Year Plan will not be achieved by just the Pastor, MOA, and a few interested members. It requires the involvement of all who love St. Paul’s to participate in developing and then living out the vision of what we want to be five years from now and beyond. We need to hear from you.
