First Actions

The Transition Team held their first meeting on Sunday, May 21, at 3pm. During the meeting, the team discussed the process that will be used during this time. Their first responsibilities are to:

  1. create a team to lead a wonderful send-off for Pastor Brian and the Keepers family
  2. ensure prompt and clear communication with the congregation
  3. identify a plan for the summer and fall worship schedule
  4. connect with the Classis via our Classis Supervisor

The send-off team has been formed and plans are well under way for the Farewell Celebration on June 4. There will be a luncheon and presentation in the Great Room beginning at 11:30am.

Communication will be handled via the Transition blog on Fellowship's website, newsletters, the bulletin, enews, announcements, and direct emails and mailings to the congregation. In order to make sure you receive all communications, please make sure your contact information is correct in our database, CCB. You can log-in here.

Further responsibilities

The Transition Team will continue to meet regularly.

Further responsibilities will be to create a prayer team for the transition, lead several listening sessions with the congregation, create a transition plan, and create a search team in coordination with the Human Resources team. More information about these will be shared as they are developed.
