Church= Work in Progress to from here?  The question has no absolute answer, as it will always be a work in progress, but there are some things we can do to approach an answer.  Along the way it is necessary to at least attempt to answer some other questions.  This section of the website will be the place to collect our thoughts as we move forward.

What is our congregational self-image?  What kind of church are we?  What kind of church do we want to be?

What is possible, given our constraints; i.e. the age and abilities of our members, the limits on their time, the nature of the community in which we live?

What has worked well in the past?  Will it work in the future?  What has worked elsewhere in similar congregations? Will it work here?

What does the congregation want from its minister?  What does it need from him/her? (Two very different questions.)
