Reimagining Life Together Plans
A reminder: the Bishop has okayed local congregations to operate within the guidelines of Phase 2 of our Greater NW Area re-opening plan if you have a Phase 2 plan which has been approved by the DS.
Many Cascadia District congregations have submitted Phase 2 plans and have had them approved or are working with the DS to finalize them.
If your church has not yet submitted a Phase 2 plan, you may do so by emailing it to DS Wendy at email@example.com. Wendy will be on vacation from August 15-30. If you have not yet submitted a plan and you want to have it reviewed prior to August 15, please submit it Wendy by August 10. Plans received after August 10 will be reviewed in early September.
In Phase 2 communal worship may happen in a variety of online or virtual ways, but indoor in-person worship is not allowed. Outdoor or drive-up communal worship may be allowed under certain conditions with an approved plan.
To see the full guidance regarding re-opening our church buildings, refer to the Reimagining Life Together document at greaternw.org/reimagining-life-together/ . Direct questions to DS Wendy Woodworth at firstname.lastname@example.org
One-to-One Meetings Follow-up
During her one-to-one meetings this summer with pastors of Cascadia District churches and other Cascadia District-related clergy, DS Wendy has been discussing setting goals.
This is reminder that a copy of your professional/ministerial and personal goals are to be sent via e-mail to Wendy (email@example.com) and Linda (firstname.lastname@example.org) within two weeks after your one-to-one meeting with Wendy.
