We allow Spirit to guide our highest and greatest good.
Several years ago, the Board of Trustees began exploring and discussing the importance of bringing more clarity to our strategic vision in a more focused, intentional way. This includes building upon the visioning and planning work of many teams—from our Board of Trustees and Staff to our congregational visioning and Minister Magnet Team.
We believe in putting feet to our prayers—and planning lights our way.
The UCOH Vision Team’s goal is to develop a 5-year strategic plan (2019-2024) that articulates our vision and the steps by which we intend to bring this vision to life. This strategic plan will serve as the “blueprint” to outline the annual priorities and day-to-day activities of UCOH. Yet, at the heart of everything we do, we are guided by Spirit. That is why the following intention serves as our guiding light in the planning process.
Vision Team Intention
Led by Spirit, we gather inputs to identify UCOH’s current value to its congregation and the community and the future potential of intentional growth. With this insight, we identify UCOH’s strategic vision to transform more lives.
We invite you to participate…here’s how!
As a valuable member of the UCOH spiritual community, we welcome your input, ideas, and intuitive visions about where Spirit is calling us to go—together.
Participate in Focus Group Discussions
In addition to the UCOH survey, we will be hosting several small group discussions on various topics. These topics are included in the survey—and you can provide your feedback on which areas are of most interest (e.g., diversity, adult learning, youth and family, etc.). The following focus groups have been scheduled and all are invited to join:
- Inreach and Outreach – Thu 05/17/18 at 6:30 p.m.
- Youth, Family, and Young Adults – Sun 05/20/18 at 2:00 p.m.
- Spiritual Growth and Awareness – Wed 05/30/18 at 7:00 p.m.
- Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Building – Sat 06/02/18 at 10:30 a.m.
- Church Services (Sun, Wed, Holidays, etc.) – Sun 06/03/18 at 2:00 p.m.
There will be time in each focus group for you to share general thoughts on your vision for UCOH. So please feel free to attend all meetings that meet your interest and/or schedule.
Share Your Insights & Thoughts with Us
Finally, if you have other ideas, Spirit-led insights or feedback, please share your thoughts with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or submitting comments to our drop box at the Member Kiosk in the Foyer.
