Round Table/World Cafe: online workshop

Date(s) - 25/01/2021
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Please join Rev. Michelle Down in the conversation and exploration of the Vision for Edith Rankin in the future. 

Daring to believe in the future is at our core, and no better time than at the beginning of a new year, to pray about where God is leading us next. I want to invite you into that discernment process, as a family at Edith Rankin. Where is God calling us as we work together to serve this community.

When I was hired, I was tasked with the responsibility of completing the staff team at Edith Rankin, and I believe that this is the time to be creative and bold in our visioning for the future.  What would be the most helpful additions to the staff team.  Community Partners Advocate; Technology Expert; Parish Nurse; Children and Youth Minister; Share Staff with other United Churches in Kingston; or just stay the course with what we have, are just as some ideas!  One full time position, or 4 positions at 10 hours a week? Lots of things to discern, and we need your input. 

Please join me in the conversation and exploration of the Vision for Edith Rankin in the future.
