Thanks to everyone who participated in the Guiding Principles Workshop last week. Each group explored a success in the their area of interest and passion and developed one or more guiding principles. Those in the focus groups will be receiving a mailing within the next few days that includes their group’s guiding principles, identifies relevant local community partners and resources and a summary of funding opportunities.
Our next workshop, Dreaming, will be on May 25th and will allow each group to dream about Emmanuel’s future in their area of passion or interest. As a faith community, we enjoy a rich diversity and a strong network of community partners and supporters. Emmanuel has been blessed with a large multi-use church building located in the heart of a growing and thriving city. It is on this canvas that we can dream and paint a future that will not only survive but inspire future generations. What is your dream?
The final workshop, on June 8th will give all members of the congregation a chance to support and participate in planning key next steps in five of the initiative ideas that come out of the dreaming workshop.
