Upcoming ADAPT Experiences:
 
August 24th (9:00am-Noon) Workshop
This workshop presented by Jack Hartman, our coach, is based on the book “Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory.” Here is a brief description: Drawing from his extensive experience as a pastor and consultant, Tod Bolsinger brings decades of expertise in guiding churches and organizations through uncharted territory. He offers a combination of illuminating insights and practical tools to help you reimagine what effective leadership looks like in our rapidly changing world.  Pastor Hartman’s presentation will prepare our hearts and minds for rethinking church in these contemporary times.  I think it’s going to be a meaningful morning and hope you all will plan to attend. August 24 from 9-Noon.  Please sign up for the August 24th workshop online using this link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A054DACAA28A5FD0-adapt2
 
September 28th (9:00am-4:00pm) Workshop and planning sessions
A team of four consultants from the church development office will lead us and guide us during this day of discerning our priorities and planning for them.  Doug Anderson will lead us in the morning by unpacking what the team has learned from all of the sources of information and connecting that to the ADAPTIVE shifts that healthy churches are making.  Lunch will be provided at Noon.  At 1:00pm, we will gather into four groups and will discuss one of the recommended ADAPTIVE shifts.  When we agree in the group what the ministry priority is, then we will begin developing the implementation plans to achieve that priority.

All-church survey
The church development consulting team gathers information from many sources.  One piece of that is an All-Church Survey that the church development team has created.  Our goal is to have 50% of the members complete this online survey.  It consists of 30 questions, and the survey does not take long. The deadline for completing this survey is August 23rd.  So, don’t put it off until tomorrow – DO IT TODAY!
