It was an energizing experience for the 70 plus people from our congregation who attended this very interactive and engaging event Friday and Saturday, November 11-12th.
We aimed to have as much of a cross-section of the congregation as possible so that we could learn from each other’s experiences and perspectives.
During the Summit, we:
- Reflected upon the living history of the congregation
- Owned some of the challenges of our present
- Determined which trends impacting our future are significant to us
- Explored some possible future scenarios and
- Drafted some common ground future directions and commitments for First Unitarian Church of Wilmington
Those who were there began to sign up for the follow-up action planning groups. These groups will develop proposals to bring about these commitments over the next 5 years. We’ll share more about this in the coming weeks.
