Planning Teams to express our Vision,Mission and Priorities

Clerk of Session

Debbie Petterson

 The Planning Team structure expresses the mission of the Church. All parts of the system are and need to be interrelated and mutually dependent. The Goals of the Church inform the goals of each Ministry Team. The Goals for 2016 inform and guide the plan for the year ahead.
PEOPLE: With a SESSION of nine Ruling Elders there are FOUR PLANNING TEAMS each led by two Elders appointed as co-chairs. This enables continuity and mutual support. In the future Nomination Committee process may more deliberately invite members to look to identify Elders who are or who have the potential to be leaders and possibly to discuss a call for Elders-Elect to a specific Planning Team.
MEETINGS: Session will have a Stated Meeting every two months: Feb, Apr, June, Aug, Oct, Dec. Planning Teams to meet every two months, in between Session Meetings, and at other times as needed. There may be occasions when a joint Planning team meeting date is secured to encourage CONVERSATION and TEAMWORK within and between Planning Teams.
Publicity / Communication: Each Planning Team will develop an effective Communication process.
