Pastor’s Corner

April 2014


 Pastoral Reflecting…

It’s been quite a ride so far. What began with a group of people reading books and attending training sessions, exploring the Fruitful Congregation Journey moved us forward to a second phase. That phase had us exploring the neighborhoods around Calvary Church. Studying the demographics of the area and spending time studying our Church in detail. Also, what most did not know was that we had 12 visits from persons who were not church attendees to evaluate our worship services from the perspective of someone looking for a church to attend. Their evaluations also went into the mix.

All that lead up to the last weekend of January when we had a team of persons come to interview and listen to different persons and groups talk about our concerns and feelings about what was happening to our Church. That process lead to a listing of what they heard as our top 5 strengths and top 5 concerns. From those concerns the team then gave us the top 5 Prescriptions for us to accept or not.

We then had 3 Town Hall Meetings on three different Sundays where we discussed the Prescriptions. That led to our Church Conference last Sunday where we to vote as to our acceptance or not of those Prescriptions.

The result of the vote was 64 yes votes and 8 no votes. So we will continue to move forward with the Fruitful Congregation Journey. This will involve the setting up of the following teams: Hospitality, Leadership, Visioning, Community Connection, Safe Sanctuary. This will also involve some workshops for training these groups by our assigned Coach, Heather Olsen- Bunnell.

So please be in prayer about your part. It will take us all focusing outward and reaching outward to “Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
