VCI Corner: Important VCI Congregational Events by Harold Tuckett
As Dixboro Church’s participation in the Vital Church Initiative (VCI) progresses to our Consultation Event (Feb. 21-22, 25), there will be two important events intended for the entire congregation.
On Saturday, February 17, we will have the “Pre-consultation Workshop” from 9:30 to 11:30am in the Fellowship Hall. It will be led by our assigned Directive Coach, Lisa Batten. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the congregation to some of the key concepts and language of the Vital Church Initiative, answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about the Consultation Event and give you an opportunity to offer feedback to our Coach. It will begin with a light continental breakfast at 9:30am. The 90-minute workshop will begin at 10:00am. Childcare will be available.
And on Wednesday, February 21, as part of the first day of our Consultation Event, there will be a dinner and workshop for the entire congregation from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The UMW will provide a dinner at 6:00, and the workshop will begin at 7:00 pm and run until 9:00. Topics to be covered include the congregation’s current reality and the principles of a healthy congregation. There will be extensive interaction with the consultation team, and opportunities to ask questions and offer feedback.
Families: We ask for at least one representative to stay for the workshop, but please bring your whole family to dinner. It’s important for our VCI program to have as many members of our congregation as possible participate in these programs.
