Our Discernment Process
Considering our Future:
Center Church, like many other mainline protestant congregations, is feeling the heat of the nationwide shift in culture. In the face of a shifting landscape and its effects on church involvement, our faith community is embarking on a journey to assess the landscape and how we might proceed into the future. For more information feel free to get in touch with our staff! To access the congregational survey, click the "Discernment Survey" button below.
This spring, we will be diving into the heavy lifting of our discernment process. We will review the results of our fall survey. We will discuss the potential paths ahead that lie at our feet. We will participate in a book study to help center our spirit and emotions as we walk through the process. See the schedule below and be sure to review the New Church Model presentations from the fall that can be found further down the page.
