Why You Should Take the Time to Reflect on First Church

All News & Views, Personal & Spiritual Development

If you’ve been a member or pledging friend of First Church for more than one year, you know that this year’s stewardship process is a little different. Yes, we traded the large all-congregation event for small and large group events in members’ homes and in the church! Yes, we are using appreciative inquiry process in these events! Orchestrating ten small to mid-size donor events takes more effort than planning one large donor event, but I have faith it will be successful in deepening personal relationships and networks within the congregation, while creating more opportunities to support the place we love. Your stewardship team believes this trade-off is worth the hard work of the numerous members volunteering as hosts and facilitators.
