Deep Water Teams Announced!

When the Deep Water Report and Recommendations were approved at our Church Conference, the next step was for us to begin putting together the teams. This was a difficult task, as we had an overwhelming response of people willing to serve on various teams. However, our Church Council recently met and approved the members of the teams. We sought to create diverse teams with the skills necessary to accomplish the task.
One of the things that we repeatedly heard in the town halls and in other settings was a call for communication about the process. Therefore, we were excited this past Sunday to announce the members of the teams! You will see the teams and the members below.
The next step is for the teams to beginning meeting as soon as possible. The Vision Team will have their first meeting this Sunday after the 11 AM service, and the Genesis Team will meet at 2 PM. The first meeting for each group will be facilitated by Rev. Dr. Margaret Kutz, who led the Deep Water Consulting Team, and preached at our church during the Deep Water weekend. Marg will help the teams to set the agendas, parameters and goals. 
As we embark on this next part of our journey, I want to encourage all of us to pray over each of the names on the list, to pray for the work of the teams, and to pray for our church as God goes before us and behind us on our journey. We will make sure to post about when the other teams schedule their meetings, so that you can pray for them!
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Alan
