The church has planned to do a longer Program Council meeting Saturday September 15 from 10:00-1:00 in Gage Hall.  In light of our transition period without a full time minister , we will all need to step up to the plate to help support our staff and Vestry.  I’d like to spend time discussing what our vision is for the future of the church so that as the Vestry moves forward in searching for an interim minister, we have input from you, our valued leaders.
In addition, I’d like to discuss how to grow leaders within our committees and how to encourage more church members to participate in committee work.  So please save the date and if you or your co-chair is unable to attend, please see if another member of your committee can attend. I will send another formal invitation at a later time with an agenda.
In preparation,  please fill out this form and return it to me ASAP. (By Sept 4)
I will compile the forms and email to all prior to the meeting. This will save us time in the meeting. We will have a Q&A session so that folks can ask questions from various committees, as needed. Agenda coming after Labor Day. Stay tuned.


With full commitment to our church family,

Priscilla Shumway, Vestry, 1st Vice Chair
