What do you most love about Niles Discovery Church?
On Sunday, April 17, following worship, we will have an opportunity to share our stories about our church and discover together the core values and elements of ministry that we are uniquely gifted to offer the world. Using a process called Appreciative Way, we will gather in pairs and small groups and share what we love best about our church and our dreams for the church’s future. The stories and data gathered at this event will become the core information that the Strategic Planning Team will use to develop our new strategic plan. This is a very important event that we hope all church members and friends will attend.
We’ll move from worship into a potluck lunch, with dessert provided through the youth bake-sale. After lunch, our consultant Barbara Broadbent, a commissioned minister in the United Church of Christ, will lead us through the process, and we’ll conclude the event at 3:45. Please bring your favorite potluck meal to share, as well as your favorite memories and hopes and dreams for Niles Discovery Church.
