Details about the event:

The Presbytery Council and Commission on Ministry are hosting a consultation on collaborative ministry in the Thumb region Saturday, March 3 from 9 a.m. to Noon at First Presbyterian Church of Sandusky. Each Thumb area church is invited to bring no more than 2 elders from their church session plus their pastoral leader, if any.

The consultation has the following purposes:

  • To review the pastoral leadership needs of the Thumb churches as they relate to their current and projected membership and resources, and context of ministry
  • Based on realistic projections of membership and resources, to anticipate future needs 5 years and 10 years out
  • To brainstorm creative and collaborative strategies to address the pastoral leadership needs of all of our churches
  • To focus on workable strategies that can be brought to sessions and/or congregations, the COM, and Council to address these needs
  • To plan first steps towards possible implementation of those strategies

In preparation for the consultation, each session should:

  • Identify who will attend the consultation on your behalf
  • Prepare and bring financial, membership, and worship attendance statistics for the past 10 years (as specified in the letter of invitation)
  • Pray for wisdom, openness to the Spirit, and creativity in our conversation

Sessions should indicate who will participate from their church by completing the following form by Thursday, March 1.
