Our church documents address different topics of interest and importance to our members.
Safe Church Policy
In March 2012, our church adopted a Safe Church Policy. As a community of faith committed to following the example of Jesus Christ, we strive to extend a generous welcome to all who enter our doors and to treat them with love and dignity. The purpose of the Safe Church Policy is to create an environment in which everyone feels safe and secure, and can therefore deepen their relationships with God and each other. Safe Church Policy (2013).
Vision Process Report
Our church conducted an all-church visioning process from 2015-2017. The attached report details all the steps that our church went through, guided by the leadership of our Vision Team. We believe this fruitful process changed the character of our church, making us more open to thinking outside the box, so that we are able to faithfully respond to the ways in which God is calling us to make the world a better, more just and peaceful place for everyone. Vision Process Report.
Annual Report 2016
Every year our church produces an Annual Report. This is a snapshot of the year, with reports from all committees and the year-end financial statements. Take a look at the attached Annual Report to see what we were up to in 2016. Annual Report Year 2016.
Our church has many active ministries which require financial resources. Our church has a unified budget, but sometimes committees or individuals want to raise money for a specific cause, or for the church’s general fund. All fundraisers must be presented to, and approved by, Parish Council. If you are interested in organizing a fundraiser, please see the attached policy and fill out the included forms. They need to be sent to the Moderator (firstname.lastname@example.org). Fundraising Policy v. 1.0 (2015-09-15).
This version of our church’s Constitution was adopted in February 2013. It outlines our church’s doctrine, along with how we’re organized and governed. The UCC Constitution
