Face Forward

 

At the congregational retreat last September, there was a visioning exercise where people brainstormed about where they want the congregation to go and what that “looks like”. We will convene a Strategic Planning Task Force next year to address many issues. In the meantime, we got feedback   that our physical, outward appearance gives the impression that our faith community is not visible or vital.

Perhaps we are a little club in the woods? Our grounds are very overgrown and untidy with weeds. Our signage could use improvements.

We are therefore embarking on a project we call Face Forward.   This involves getting professional help to come up with a landscaping plan that make us look more vibrant and inviting, as well as easy to maintain ourselves. We envision better, more visible signage by our driveway entrance.

Details about the project will be available at the March 10th kickoff.  To do this, we will be asking people to donate additional funds for this big project, planned to take place over the course of this spring. We have a generous donation from an anonymous donor of Matching Funds up to $5,000. Every dollar you donate has the ability to go twice as far!    If you donate to this facelift for our congregation, please make sure to put “Face Forward in the memo line on your check or be sure to let the Treasurer know that your extra donation is intended for that purpose.

During March Money Madness we are asking people to be generous in the short term, and for next year as well. We appreciate all that people are able to do!
