~ Pris Kloess
With the retirement of Peter Ilgenfritz last December, our church is looking to the future to see what changes this will bring. The Futures Task Force is organized and digging into the past, present and future of our congregation.
We are asking questions to seek feedback and individual reflections that will provide clarity to this process.
We want to know what motivates you and excites you about your church involvement. How has the church contributed to your life-who or what personal connections, and/or spiritual experiences have made a difference for you? What makes our church unique? And lastly, so important, is what are wishes you have for our church going forward? Your thoughts are important as we make plans for the future of our church.
A thoughtful and talented consultant, Don Hill, has been hired to advise the committee. He will help guide the process that will ultimately be recommended to the Church Council.
The Futures Task Force includes Tim Croll, Ellen Naden, Bart Klingler, Joan Davis, Margaret Stine, Mary Jean Phipps, Mary Kollar, Mary Sue Galvin, Carol Bryant, Denis Streeter, Tim Johnson, Becca McMullen, Emily Morishema, co-chairs Kathy Kripps and Pris Kloess, and Catherine Foote, the staff liaison.
