New Beginnings Continues

More than 40 church members are participating in one of four New Beginnings study groups. These groups are meeting on Sundays after church and on Wednesday before choir for an hour and forty-five minutes.

Over sandwiches and refreshments, these members have discussed vitality and discipleship at Union. They’ve read the detailed New Beginnings Assessment for our church and have considered a realistic picture of the strength of Union’s leadership. In October, the groups will carefully study the demographic characteristics and ministry needs of the Saint Peter community and what this congregation may be called to do to meet those needs. They will explore these options while maintaining a realistic sense of what is possible for our future given our resources. The groups will summarize their findings by the end of October and will report back to the Session for the November 12 stated meeting.

I am deeply grateful for the time, thoughtfulness, and effort of each of the church members who are contributing to New Beginnings. I am especially thankful to Todd Ruble, John McKay, and others who are stepping forward to lead study sessions, and to Sara McKay for providing lunches and dinners.

We are deliberating because we believe that Union is a comfortable church that is called to be a passionate church for God’s Kingdom. We begin, we work, and we have our completion in Christ. Thanks be to God.
