We completed our third Master Plan project review on Wednesday, May 10. The first project review on March 15 was a discussion of the key learnings of JNKA, our architect partners, from our survey inputs and interview sessions.
Although I’ve only been a part of the Open Doors Ministry for three years now, I’ve come to understand that the belief in acceptance is and has been deeply rooted within the life of Grace.
Join us Friday (May 12) at 6:30 p.m. and again, Sunday (May 14) at 11 a.m. to witness the solving of a great mystery!
We have now completed our second Master Plan project review, on Wednesday, April 12.
On Mother’s Day weekend, the Children’s Music Ministry will share a musical like none they’ve ever done before.
The surveys are in, the interviews are done, and our first project review with JNKA Architects was completed on March 15. The architects were impressed at the amount of input they received from members and groups within Grace and how well this input re-enforced our goals:
How do you feel when you enter Grace? How do you think a visitor might feel? Do you give up fighting your way through narrow halls after worship to get to coffee and just head for your car? Are you comfortable finding your way around Grace or do you just stick to the places you know?
If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Theresa Bussert and her son, Zak, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce them to you. I met Theresa in September 2014, shortly after I had joined Grace as the Open Doors Ministry’s Coordinator.
Can we find a way to make visitors to Grace feel right at home? Can we make it easy for visitors and young families to find their way around on Sunday morning? Can we find a way to avoid gridlock after Worship when heading for coffee? What can we do to enhance and enrich our sense of “community” across our various Grace activities?
Our Visions Team effort has marched on through 2016 with a focus on implementing many key recommendations, while at the same time reflecting on and discerning evolving needs of our community and members.
