RealTalk at Highland: Preparing for the Road Ahead

2015.04 Real Talk Postcard - WHITE JPG

Highland has weathered several frenetic years, with renovation, member policies, same-sex marriage conversations and a new Sunday schedule leading the way.

It’s time for us to step back, see where we’ve come, and give thanks for the many good gifts we’ve received along the way.

RealTalk, using Appreciative Inquiry resources, will shape our conversation and allow us to talk about the real and important growth we’ve experience amidst the challenges.  It invites clarity on Highland’s deepest-held values.  This process was enormously successful at a recent Leadership Retreat for Deacons, Ministry Council, and staff.

We are asking every Highland member to participate in one of the two times set for this conversation (we will add more when these fill out): Thursday, May 7, at 7:00 p.m. or Saturday, May 9, at 4:00 p.m.  Childcare for birth-5th grade will be offered only on May 9.  RSVP for childcare to Renee Purtlebaugh by May 4.

Your participation in this process will be a gift to the church and to you!
