Transition Team Announcement
Transition Team in Place
After tallying votes from the congregation and in consultation with Laura Stephens-Reed, the Committee on Committees is pleased and excited to report a Transition Team is in place. Members of the Team are:
- Shawn Hawkins, chair
- Sally Smith
- David Weatherspoon
- Gloria Hodges
- Mike Ward
- Robin Miller
- Craig Locke
- Cherish Mathis
- April Blankenship
The mission of the Transition Team is to lead the congregation through a process of naming who it has been, who it is now, who God is calling it to be, and what it will take to live toward that future story.
Members of the Team will be meeting with Laura for training and preparation for church wide discussions to begin in September.
Please be in prayer for this Team as they lead the congregation in discussions about who we are as a church and what we want for the future.
