Update on Vitality Team

I imagine that you are excited to hear the results from our consultant’s onsite visit!

Paul Nixon was at Chapel in the Pines on September 10–12. Since then, he has met with the Vitality Team twice and those lay leaders have met an additional two times. And trust me, there have been plenty of emails!

The session will receive Rev. Nixon’s report this Monday, October 18, along with recommendations from the Vitality Team. I can tell you that these recommendations relate to living even more fully into our mission statement — Welcome, Worship, Witness. Once the session receives these recommendations, the Vitality Team will work with existing committees and newly formed task forces to implement the recommendations. This is key! The plans need to be implemented in the life of the church … and that includes getting more people involved!

In the days, weeks, and months to come, I hope you will be excited by the new opportunities to volunteer and feel called to give your time and talent. Speaking of which, we have a “Committee Fair” in between worship services this Sunday (October 17 from 10:15 to 10:55) where you can learn lots of ways to volunteer. I hope you will join us!

In hope,
