Long Range Plan

The 2017 and Beyond Long Range Plan is now in development. Read the LRP Interim Report, presented in open sessions at Grace on March 26 and April 2, 2017.

The LRP Planning Team has gathered input from members in three SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results) sessions plus additional inspired ideas from the small groups that read and discussed the book “Shift – Three Big Moves for the 21st Century Church.” The Team is currently compiling and sifting through myriad possibilities to shape a plan to guide the ministry of Grace for the next few years. The goal of the LRP Planning Team is to present a draft plan to the Council in August 2017 and then to the congregation following that.

2013 Long Range Plan

After three years, through the active shepherding of numerous church council champions, dozens of congregational advocates and many volunteers, more than 90 percent of the 2013 Long Range Plan goals were completed.
