Discernment Committee

issues final report

Last spring, Bishop Hirschfeld appointed a team of nine people to “explore how we can more joyfully pursue God’s mission” in our Shared Ministry. The committee, whose names you’ll find below, had eight meetings between March and October. The first six meetings were focused on information gathering. The final two focused on drawing conclusions based on the information gathered over the first six months. Items considered included finances, our physical facilities, a “ministry inventory” describing what we do and with what impact, worship options available to us, governance, membership trends, and, as an overarching question, “What is God doing in the Seacoast region?” Earlier this month, the committee, along with Bishop Hirschfeld, met jointly with our Bishop’s Committee to present its findings and commend to us a path forward.
