This Sunday we will be holding a Guiding Principles Workshop, the 2nd of 4 workshops redefining our vision for Emmanuel. This Sunday’s workshop will allow each of the focus groups to hear about a success related to their interest/passion. After a brief presentation and discussion, each group will then develop one or more guiding principles as revealed to them. You are encouraged to move between groups as your passion guides you. Presenters for this Sunday include Rosemary Redshaw (former chaplain at Grand Valley Institute), Jennifer Mainse (the Working Center), Brandon Spunar, Barby Butts, Neal Moogk-Soulis and Melissa Keith. Each of these presenters will be sharing an exciting success related to our passions. Your efforts to make it to this Sunday’s workshop will be rewarded!
Here is a summary of other key information for the remaining workshops.
May 25 – Workshop #3 – Dreaming
Each group will be given time to generate ideas for projects that will either transform or expand how we worship or serve. At the end of this workshop all members of the congregation will be able to identify which ideas they want to support.
June 8 – Workshop #4 – Next Steps And Planning
At this point in the planning process we will have 5 sets of tables setup for the most supported project ideas. In this facilitated session, groups will be guided through a process to layout a plan for the project and key next steps.
