From now until March 26, Morningsiders have a crucial opportunity to shape our future for the coming three years. Our Strategic Planning team is offering two tools to solicit opinions, wants and dreams from our congregation.  Your responses will help the team, Session and staff develop the plan we'll follow through 2020. One tool is the Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT), the same survey used to build our previous plan. The survey must be completed in one sitting and takes as little as 20 minutes. People who share an email address can each input an individual CATscan. Paper copies are also available in the church office. The more of us who complete the CAT, the more accurate our plan will be in reflecting the will of the congregation.  In addition, planning chair Jeff Peters will hold two listening sessions on Thursday, March 9 in Room 201 at 6:45 and 8:45 p.m. where you can give more detail about your thoughts in an open forum. Let Jeff know if you plan to attend one of these session.
