Church Council Recommends Adoption of Long-Range Plan

Church Council voted unanimously November 17 to recommend adoption of a new long-range plan for First Church at the annual congregational meeting in January.

The 15-member Long-Range Planning Committee has been working since last February to prepare the "Long-Range Plan 2016-2020: The 20/20 Vision."

The plan is organized around six action words:

-- Provide WORSHIP opportunities centering on our tradition of excellent music, art and preaching.

-- Extend a WELCOME that is genuinely inclusive of our rich diversity.

-- Promote opportunity for members to CONNECT in ways that build relationship and insure congregational care.

-- Empower our membership to ENGAGE the wider community in seeking social justice.

-- BUILD adequate staff and programming resources necessary to reach our goals.

-- Update the ways we COMMUNICATE with contemporary technologies.

The full text of the plan can be viewed on the church's website. In addition, the committee prepared five addenda that provide background information on the committee's work and recommendations. The addenda also are on the website.

The committee will communicate further about the long-range plan in preparation for the annual meeting.
