University UM Church members are congratulated for deciding by a vote of 83%, on October 23 at a special church conference, to officially accept and implement the VCI Consultation Team’s report. And now, in January 2017 after the Christmas season, even more very important and difficult work continues for our congregation. Pastor Bill Bills has written a detailed VCI update which you may read beginning Friday, December 9, at UniversityChurchHome.org>Vital Church Initiative> Updates, Information and Opportunities.
Work has begun on creating a number of teams called for by the prescriptions. Priority attention is being given to Prescription 3: Sunday Morning Experience, page 5 of the report. Pastor Bill is charged with creating volunteer teams in conjunction with UUMC congregants. After prayerfully considering whether God is calling you to be a part of shaping UUMC’s future in this way, let Pastor Bill know (email@example.com or 517.351.7030).
Church members and friends may obtain copies of several VCI reports in the church office, or you may have them emailed to you. If you would like a PDF version of any report, please send you request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
