Sun. April 28th: RISE Part 2, Congregational Meeting and Potluck

potluck rise part 2 april 28 2019

RISE, Part 2, the Gathering, will be another lovely potluck and it will be combined with the congregational meeting right after church.  We will be diving further into the responses from the initial RISE question packet (please contact the church office if you have not received it and would like to add to the questions relevant to Brookmeade).  This will be a time of Venn Diagramming so that we can combine our perspectives into a unified vision and mission statement for Brookmeade in light of a rich and deep history that has created a vibrant and diverse environment where all are welcome.  This language that we develop together will be used on Brookmeade’s website and word-of-mouth communication.  This will help us usher in new pastors as we will be able to communicate who we are through this work that we are doing! Come join the work Sunday, April 28th at 11:30am after church! Bring a dish for the potluck or just come and enjoy.  All are welcome.
