The Officers and Leadership Circle of the Congregational Church of West Medford | Sanctuary UCC issue this call to the 2020 Annual Congregational Visioning Meeting (and Process) as defined by our by-laws, the schedule for which was adjusted in a Special Congregational Meeting on 5/31/2020.

As per the bylaws, the purpose of this annual Visioning Meeting is to:

a) Review and assess the congregation’s mission, ministries, objectives, and goals; and

b) Make adjustments as called for from the dialogue and discernment. (Article IV. Section B).

The Leadership Circle and Discernment Team have developed a visioning process centered in scripture and contemplative prayer. The model is outlined here and will be used over the next year as a congregation-wide spiritual practice, a way to orient our faith and our ministry, and a path to discernment – for now and for the future.

The visioning process begins in an initial meeting (9/27), continues in small prayer circles, reconnects to the whole (10/25), returns to small prayer circles and will continue in this cycle as discernment unfolds in the midst of Covid19 and the safety measures we must practice.

Signed by Joanna Begin, Moderator on behalf of the Leadership Circle
