Comments and suggestions from the parish posted: Jeanette Holden has created a bulletin board of highlights from our three group meetings with parishioners at the church, displayed in the courtyard on Sunday and in the Van Schaick room during the week. The full 13 page compilation is on the bulletin board in the broad hallway near the choir entrance double doors.
CAT Survey results have been incorporated into the developing Ministry Profile (Rector job description) and Parish Profile (description of who we are and who we want to be). We hope to have these documents completed and job posted within the next several weeks.
Search Bookmarks in pews. A nice creation by Jane Beck. Take one!
How you can help now:
1. Website and Facebook: The new website is off to a great start, and we have an established Facebook page as well. These sites are living and changing creations, and we want them to be as attractive and interesting as possible to a rector candidate. This will actually be one of our main activities during the next few weeks. Please give us any of the following:
c. Leads on other church websites you like
d. General ideas for improving content of website.
e. Ideas for improving layout and graphic design of website
f. Ideas for making navigation of the website easier, or keeping something we already have-what works or doesn't work for you? Did you have trouble finding something?
2. Ideas for Rector candidates. Do you know, or have you heard of, someone at another parish we should look at? (Will be kept strictly confidential)
3. Ideas for churches that work well. Ideally, these would be Episcopal Churches, but other denominations have lessons for us as well. Please pass on what interests you-others will likely be interested too. So far, we have: All Saints in Pasadena, St.Thomas in Medina, WA, St. John's in Ross, CA. I am sure there are dozens more. It could just be one particular program that would be inspiring for us.
Thanks to all, it's a parish-wide effort here!
