The purpose of an interim period is to help our congregation prepare for the arrival of a new minister by achieving:
- Healthy closure to the past
- Spiritual, Relational, Organizational & Operational Renewal
- Clarity of Identity, Mission & Vision
- Thorough Preparation for the Search Process
As we travel through our interim period, we will be discussing and reflecting on all five areas represented below. Until we have a firm grasp of the answers to these questions, it would be unwise to undertake a search process. Finding the answers to these searching questions is one of the reasons we have chosen to have our interim period span three years.
The Transition Team was appointed by The Parish Committee in the fall of 2018 with input from both the Parish Committee and Jenny Rankin, our Interim Minister. The team consists of seven (7) members; the co-chairs of the team were determined by a vote of the team members themselves. The team is made up of church members; young, old, new(er), long timer, male, female, working and retired.
Current members are:
- Chris Andrysiak
- Becca Fasciano
- Gina Halsted – Chair
- Chris Hamilton
- Kathy Huber
- Ken Hurd
- Gary Taylor
Former members include:
- Elizabeth Robbat Kelly (2018/19)
- R.L. Smith Co-Chair (2018-2020)
- Liz Wilkinson (2018-2020)
The Team’s primary mission is to lead the congregation through a period of self-examination, discovery, and renewal.
